Please Cellular respiration worksheets for high school pdf: This course is being removed July 1st. There is an updated Biology course available.
You could consider switching over when you get to the end of a quarter. If you are having trouble with files and videos in this course and want to switch as soon as possible, you could switch at the end of a main unit. It won’t affect you on the final to switch courses, but there are different assignments, so the grading sheets are different. This course covers the basic material for this exam, but this is considered a very hard test, and I would suspect more will need to be studied to learn everything required for this huge exam. It’s worth the same as two college courses which is why it covers so much. This course is based on Georgia Virtual Learning’s High School Biology course, though it pulls in other resources throughout.
This curriculum includes topics such as the scientific method, cells, biochemistry, photosynthesis and respiration, mitosis and meiosis, DNA and RNA, genetics, ecology, evolution and creation, taxonomy, viruses and bacteria, protists and fungi, and finally animals. Students will learn through texts, videos, online interactives and through hands-on and virtual lab investigations. The GVL pages sometimes have links to Discovery Education videos. You will not be using those. Just follow the directions in the course below as to what materials to use each day. I believe in a literal six-day creation of the world by our holy, loving, almighty, creative God. This will be discussed in the beginning of the course to give the framework for how evolution will be approached.
Natural selection is taught as it corresponds with Biblical truth but not beyond that. Students will gain some understanding of secular evolutionary thought and come away strengthened in their faith. Many of the materials mention millions of years, and I can’t get away from that, but the students will not be required to take any of that as fact. Thanks to Jessica Ryder for her help with this course. Keep in mind that your success in Biology will be directly proportional to the amount of effort you invest. You should complete every activity assigned to strengthen your understanding of each concept.
Be responsible for your own learning. Confidence is half the battle. Read all text and supplementary materials as assigned. Try, and then try again. Complete all assignments as assigned. Safety Laboratory safety is important.
