Cellular Biology

In this unit you will examine how microscopes work and how they helped advance the cell theory. You will then explore how organic chemistry plays a crucial role in many of the functions within the cell. You will focus primarily on carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids with special attention on enzymes. You will explore the mechanisms in which material can pass into and out of the cell. You will take a look at how the sun’s energy can be stored by photosynthesis and used during cellular respiration. You will also look at how medicine and technology have assisted those whose cells may not function properly, as well as the impact of toxins in the environment. Assessments will occur throughout the unit in the form of self-evaluations, practice questions, quizzes, discussions, and a final unit test.

Microbiology

In this unit you will learn about microbiology. You will examine how organisms are arranged using taxonomy. The groups of organisms you will be examining are viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. You will also investigate how these organisms are useful to humans and the environment. Their negative impact will be examined as these groups also contain pathogenic organisms. You will perform a laboratory investigation looking at how bread mould grows. You will complete the activity with a unit test.

Genetics

In this unit you will develop your understanding of the language of genetics. You will then explore the methods of cell division as well as the mutations that occur during them. The laws of heredity will be examined along with how to calculate the probability of outcomes. You will then look at the reproductive technologies associated with sexual reproduction; these technologies have also led to controversies that you will examine. You will complete the unit with a unit test.

Mammalian Biology

In this unit you will be exploring mammalian anatomy with a primary focus on human anatomy. You will start your study with an overview of all the systems and how homeostasis maintains a normal range of conditions in the body. You will then focus on the primary systems, which include the digestive system, excretory system, circulatory system, and respiratory system. You will also be performing research on digestive system disorders, circulatory system disorders, and respiratory system disorders. Next you will turn your focus to human health and the social and economic costs associated with maintaining it. You will then assess your own health by performing a laboratory investigation on yourself. Finally you will explore the anatomy of a fetal pig during a virtual dissection and complete the activity with a unit test.

Plants and the natural environment

In this unit you will examine the biodiversity in the natural environment and the role plants play. You will learn about the various plant groups such as mosses, ferns, angiosperms, and gymnosperms. Plant cells and the internal structures and tissues formed will also be studied. You will then look at seed formation and dispersal and plant propagation techniques. You will see how plants respond to hormones and the environment along with factors that affect plant growth. Pests and their management will also be studied along with how plants can have an environmental impact. During the unit you will complete various quizzes, a lab and projects, and you will finish with a unit test.
