Biology

Our biology course is a comprehensive course designed to prepare students for high school biology and AP/IB biology. This course begins with a consideration of the living condition and discussion of the unique properties of living organisms that set life apart from the non-living. It continues with molecular and cellular biology, from which it moves logically into reproduction and genetics. An understanding of genetics gives meaning to organized variation, evolution and methods of scientific classification units dealing with microbiology and plant and animal phylum. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics like evolution, energetics, information storage and transfer, and system interactions. This course has an array of tests and quizzes to evaluate student performance, accordingly instructors may also assign homework based on class progress. Our course is divided into 9 main units, which are listed below:

 

UNIT 1 - Foundations of Biology

UNIT 2 - Cells

UNIT 3 - Energy and Transport

UNIT 4 - Cell Division/Reproduction

UNIT 5 - Principles of Heredity

UNIT 6 - Molecular Genetics

UNIT 7 - Evolution

UNIT 8 - Human Body

UNIT 9 - Ecology 

Medicine and Physiology

Our Medicine and Physiology is a comprehensive course designed to prepare students for high school/college physiology courses. This course teaches the functions of the human body at a level required for clinical medicine. The course covers normal physiology, as well as selected diseases. Concepts are organized by systems. Additional content includes an introductory section on the cell, body fluids and autonomic nervous system and a final Integration section which applies the principles learned throughout the course to special situations (Pregnancy, Aging, Exercise, Stress). This course has an array of tests and quizzes to evaluate student performance, accordingly instructors may also assign homework based on class progress. Our course is divided into 8 main units, which are listed below:

UNIT 1 - Introduction to the Circulatory system

UNIT 2 - Introduction to Respiratory system 

UNIT 3 - Introduction to Nervous system

UNIT 4 - Introduction to Skeletal system

UNIT 5 - Introduction to Muscular system

UNIT 6 - Introduction to Gastrointestinal system

UNIT 7 - Introduction to Hematologic system

UNIT 8 - Introduction to Reproductive system
