Course
Unit 1
Unit 1
For this unit, cellular structure, types, function, and biochemistry are topics. Understanding the chemistry of life is addressed.
Unit 2
Unit 2
For this unit, photosynthesis and cellular respiration and their role in how energy flow and matter cycles through an ecosystem are discussed. This unit also addresses the interactions of organisms within an ecosystem.
Unit 3
Unit 3
Cellular reproduction, gamete formation, and karyotypes are reviewed. Understanding of mitosis and binary fusion, as well as meiosis, are highlighted.
Unit 4
Unit 4
Biological evolution is the main topic in this unit. Heredity, sex-linked traits, blood type genetics, and dihybrid crosses are all reviewed and explored.
Unit 5
Unit 5
DNA and mutations are covered in this Unit. The relationships between DNA and RNA are explored, including their unique communication called transcription. New genetics is also covered.
Unit 6
Unit 6
The mysteries of evolution are discussed. The history and scientists that gave life to modern day interpretations of population genetics and human evolution are explored.
Unit 7
Unit 7
Ecology is the main topic of this Unit. Food webs, cycles, interactions into population growth including succession, biomes, invasive species, and biomagnification.
Unit 8
Unit 8
Biology and the human organism to maintain homeostasis is an overview in this Unit. System by system is examined.
