This Biology course explores life over a broad spectrum from “micro” to “macro” focus. The curriculum spends a good portion of the year exploring the molecular basis of living things, and the cellular processes which enable living organisms to exist and function as they do. Included in these units are detailed studies of DNA (the genetic code for all life), photosynthesis (light and dark reactions), cellular respiration (glycolysis and Krebs cycle), and protein synthesis (from DNA to RNA transcription to polypeptide assembly/translation.
In the second semester students study genetics and natural selection theories, examining the relationship between the two and seeing how these are used to explain the incredible diversity which exists in living things. Finally, an overview of human anatomical systems allows the students to “zoom-out”, examining the more “macro” topics of organs and systems and applying the molecular processes learned earlier to their roles in human physiology.
