Upon completion of this course, students will:

  • Demonstrate knowledge and communicate the process of science as it applies to biology
  • Describe and identify the characteristics of life shared by all living organisms
  • Demonstrate understanding of atomic structure
  • Demonstrate knowledge of cell function and structure
  • Describe the process of biological evolution and its relationship to both the unity and the diversity of life
