Biology II--Honors and CP

Biology II-Honors and CP build on concepts learned in Biology I and provide an in-depth examination of additional topics not covered in Biology I.  The aim of this course is to help you integrate information from biology, chemistry, and physics topics to better understand biology and make more informed decisions in areas that require a knowledge of biological science. 

Students will conduct laboratory activities, collect, analyze, and interpret data to learn about the diverse and unique characteristics of biology as a science, use and interpret basic statistics, and understand the multifaceted nature of biological issues.   Dissection is included in this course.
