Biology: Living and Chemical Systems (Accelerated)
This laboratory course investigates living organisms and their relationships with the non-living world. Topics include the anatomy and physiology of organisms, evolution, genetics, and cellular function. Students learn to explain the interactions of life by drawing on fundamental concepts in chemistry. Emphasis is placed on developing strong science inquiry skills. The accelerated level of this course is intended for those students who have a strong background and interest in mathematics and will use abstract reasoning extensively.
Prerequisite: At least concurrent enrollment in Algebraic Foundations I.
