Honors Biology is designed for students who have a foundation in Physics and Chemistry and who are eager to apply that knowledge to the study of Biology. Students will learn basic biochemistry and its applications to cellular structure and function. Ultimately, students will gain a wonder and appreciation for the similarities and differences between organisms as well as their interactions in diverse ecosystems. The textbook serves as a guide; students will have additional outside reading that will be discussed in class. Biblical worldview and classical methodologies will guide all coursework and discussions. This will allow students to expand and sharpen their knowledge and understanding of many topics, including those that may be controversial. The laboratory component of the course is partially inquiry based, and students will participate in the design of certain laboratory exercises.
Prerequisite: Chemistry or Honors Chemistry
