This course was written to meet the Life Science Next Generation Science Standards.

Class Expectations and Assignments

Students will meet the objectives within the units through activities, which engage students in the Scientific Practices and provide opportunities to discuss Crosscutting Concepts following the Next Generation Science Standards.  These activities include but are not limited to: reading content and answering questions, investigation and collaboration, using the processes and technologies that real scientists and engineers use, through applied mathematicians, by working in teams to formulate questions and answer those questions, make predictions, design investigations, collect and analyze data, make products and share ideas, and creating multimedia presentations. Students will participate in labs which will comprise 20% of the course.  Students will have the opportunity to design, collaborate and complete inquiry-based lab, fieldwork, and investigations for each unit of study.  Students will complete the assignments, including collaboration components, and will be graded on these projects, labs, daily work, midterm and final.
