Biology is focused on the use of life science principles as powerful conceptual tools to make sense of the complexity, diversity and interconnectedness of life on Earth. Students engage in experiences that encourage the application of biological knowledge to make decisions and solve problems. The course covers the major topics of modern biology and students must demonstrate active participation and independent study.
Chemistry is focused on the study of the concepts of academic chemistry including properties, classification and reactions of matter, atomic theory, bonding and periodic properties and dynamics. Students engage in learning experiences that encourage the application of chemistry principles to make decisions and solve problems. The course covers the major topics of modern chemistry and students must demonstrate active participation and independent study.
