What makes this course interesting?

Learn to think like a scientist, and become an independent investigator through student-directed laboratory investigations:

  • Pose the questions and determine the variables you want to investigate
  • Design your own experiments and procedures
  • Determine how best to present your conclusions

Learn about the core scientific principles, theories, and processes governing living organisms, biological systems, and natural phenomena.

Understand key science practices you can use to develop explanations and predictions of natural phenomena, which you will test and refine through laboratory investigations. Develop advanced reasoning and inquiry skills as you design experiments, collect and analyze data using mathematics and other methods, and interpret that data to draw conclusions.
