Course description

This rigorous life science laboratory course is for students who wish to pursue a more challenging approach to biology and is designed to meet the curriculum framework of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program and the Arizona Science Standards. Students will engage in scientific inquiry and practices to understand living systems and explore, in-depth, topics related to: ecology and environmental systems, interdependence of organisms, cellular processes, genetics and the molecular basis of heredity, and the scientific principles and processes involved in biological evolution. Upon completion of this course, students should have a deep understanding of life science, the world’s natural processes, and be prepared for IB Diploma science courses. Per the IB curriculum framework, MYP students are assessed on these criteria: knowing and understanding; inquiring and designing; processing and evaluating; reflecting on the impact of science.
