Welcome to Biology!!!
In Biology 1 we will introduce biology as a science, learn to design and carry out scientific experiments, and cover the Biology 1 curriculum to prepare for the End of Course exam in May.
Laboratory work is an essential part of any biology course. Our lab work this year will include the use of scientific inquiry, research methods and measurement, problem solving, laboratory equipment and technologies, experimental procedures, and safety procedures.
