AP BIOLOGY

This course is equivalent to a college-level introductory biology course. Major areas of study include molecules and cells, heredity and evolution, and organisms and populations. The major goals of this course are to help students develop a conceptual framework for modern biology and to help students gain an appreciation for science as a process. Completion of this course will prepare students for the AP Biology exam. Students electing this course should be highly motivated, self-disciplined and inquisitive.

Recommendation: Satisfactory completion of Biology.

An honor point may be earned in this course.

BIOLOGY 3

COMPARATIVE ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY

Comparative anatomy and physiology is the study of similarities and differences in the form and function of living organisms. This course will examine vertebrate anatomy from behavioral, physiological, and evolutionary perspectives. The course will focus on origin, evolution, and development of vertebrates with special emphasis on the human body. The course will concentrate on the body at a microscopic level and then move on to the individual systems including the skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, reproductive, digestive, respiratory, and urinary system. Along with these topics, students will explore current scientific issues by reading and evaluating original literature so that they have direct access to new developments in the field of evolution and anatomy/ physiology. A substantial amount of laboratory experience will be involved including an extensive pig dissection with a lab practical assessment.
