Step into the realm of High School Biology, where a captivating adventure through the fundamental principles and processes that govern Life awaits. From the basics of cellular structures and the genetic code to the vast ecosystems and evolutionary processes that shape our world, embark on a journey that bridges the gap between theory and practical application through dynamic virtual simulations.

Building Blocks of Life

The course begins by introducing the scientific method and experimental design, providing students with the tools to investigate biological phenomena. Students will then explore the chemical foundations of life, including the structure of atoms, the properties of water, and the roles of essential biomolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins. The course also delves into the structure and function of cell membranes, comparing and contrasting animal, plant, eukaryotic, and prokaryotic cells.

Genetics and Evolution

Students will investigate the processes of mitosis and meiosis, understanding how cells divide and how genetic information is passed from one generation to the next. The course will also explore the structure and function of DNA and RNA, as well as the principles of inheritance, including alleles and Mendel's Laws. Students will learn how to organize the diversity of life, examine the evidence for evolution and apply the Hardy-Weinberg principle.

Energy, Cycles and Ecosystems

The course will provide an introduction to the morphology of bacteria, exploring their unique characteristics and roles in various environments. Students will also study ecology, learning about trophic levels, energy flow, carbon and nitrogen cycles, biodiversity, and sustainability. By understanding the complex interactions within ecosystems, students will gain a deeper appreciation for the delicate balance that sustains life on our planet.

Learning Objectives

  • Compare and contrast the characteristics of animal, plant, eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.
  • Apply the scientific method and experimental design principles to investigate biological phenomena, analyze data, and draw evidence-based conclusions.
  • Evaluate the principles of genetics and inheritance, to solve genetic problems and predict offspring outcomes.
  • Interpret the complex interactions within ecosystems and propose sustainable solutions to ecological challenges.
