Biology Achievement
(Grades 9-10; 7 periods/week, full year; 1 unit)

This course covers the same material as Biology but examines each area at a greater level of depth and detail, and proceeds at a faster pace. It provides a comprehensive overview of the central concepts of biology: cell structure and function, genetics, human physiology, evolution, ecology and the diversity of life. Each week four periods are spent in the laboratory, carrying out experiments and investigations, while the remaining three are devoted to the presentation and discussion of new material. The ecology unit culminates in the spring trimester with a field trip to Drey Land for a field ecology study (Click here for complete description of Biology Drey Land program.) This approach adequately prepares students for the Biology SAT II.
