Biology is an end of course assessment class that requires a comprehension final given by the state at the end of the school year. This test is worth 20% of the overall grade of the course. This class covers content dealing with Ecology, Cell structure, function and transport, Biochemistry, Photosynthesis and cell respiration, Genetics, DNA/RNA, plant and animal behavior and the human body system.
Grading policy-test and quizzes are 50% of the overall 9 weeks grades with homework, classwork and labs making up the other 50%.
I try to make this a hands on learning experience with quite a few demonstrations and lab experiences.
