This introductory course in biology is taught from a Christian worldview using classical methodology. Students study the nature of life and the chemical basis of living cells as well as cell structure, function, division and genetics. An overview of the five kingdoms is presented, and students consider representative organisms from each kingdom and their ecological interrelationships. Students are encouraged 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 effective lab reports.
Prerequisite: Chemistry is recommended but not required
