|Biology - Honors
Molecular and traditional concepts in biology will be explored through a combination of laboratory investigations, lectures and various technologies. General themes will be taken from molecular biology, energy usage, epidemiology, genetics, biodiversity, ecology and anatomy / physiology. Instructional strategies will focus more on abstract as well as conceptual approaches at a rapid pace. This course is intended to not only cover standards expected in the MCAS frameworks, but also prepare students for potential advanced studies in biology.
