Biology is intended to expose students to the designs and patterns of living organisms that have been created by God. In preceding years, students should have developed a foundational understanding of life sciences. This biology course will expand upon that knowledge and incorporate more abstract knowledge. The student's understanding should encompass both the micro and macro aspects of life and this biology course includes both. The major concepts covered are taxonomy, the chemical basis of life, cellular structure and function, genetics, microbiology, botany, human anatomy and physiology, and ecological principles. Students at this level should show development in their ability and understanding of scientific inquiry. The units contain experiments (Smart Science) and projects that seek to develop a deeper conceptual meaning for the student and actively engage the student.
Interactive and flexible, this course gives students a whole new way to look at God's world and learn about the relationship man has with the environment. From taxonomy and cells to the human body and the ecosystem, students are encouraged to explore all living things and answer biological questions from a Christ-based perspective. This course is a scientific method for success, sure to engage your students through the delivery of online lessons and interactive media. A complete study of living things, this biology course includes lessons about plant and animal classification, habitats, the human body, cells and reproduction, ecology, microbiology, and biotechnology. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia Biology enriches the educational experience for the homeschool Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.
