Course Details

Honors Biology (523)

Honors Biology is an accelerated survey course for the dedicated science student. Students are expected to read, take notes, and be prepared to ask questions in advance of in-class lecture presentations on material. They must be willing to guide their own learning; class time is used to expand on topics from assigned reading. Students will study topics in-depth at all levels of biological organization, beginning with the molecule and progressing to the world biome. Lab work is a major component of the class requiring students to apply classroom and textbook knowledge with problem-solving skills. Additionally, students will use their acquired skills and knowledge to complete a student-led research project.

Prerequisite: Completion of Chemistry and a grade of B+ or higher in current non-Honors/non-AP science course or B or higher in current Honors/AP science course
