This is a year-long class but late add ons are welcome 

Biology is the study of life. Students will be introduced to the process of science through lectures, discussions, activities, and laboratory exercises. Emphasis is placed on proper laboratory procedures, qualitative and quantitative observations, and accurately maintaining a laboratory notebook. These crucial skills prepare students for further studies in science. The course is aimed to emphasize the role biology plays in the lives of students in today's society. Topics covered in the first semester include biochemistry, cell structure and function, and energy (photosynthesis and cellular respiration) and genetics. We will take a field trip at least once each semester. During the second semester, we will focus on anatomy and physiology, evolution, and ecology. Biology Students will participate in the SC Learning Center's Annual Science Festival in March.

Our Syllabus is aligned with the approved a-g requirements (Ocean Grove have approved Santa Cruz Learning Center for a-g credit for this course).
