In this introductory biology course, students examine from a biblical worldview the nature of life and the chemical basis of living cells. Using classical methodology, students learn to think critically about evolutionary theory as it is discussed with care and consideration given to diverse opinions. Students complete laboratory exercises and gain experience writing formal lab reports. Topics include: cell structure, function, division and genetics; overview of the five kingdoms, including representative organisms from each kingdom and their ecological interrelationships through dissection of organisms or a virtual alternative.
Prerequisite: Chemistry is recommended but not required.
