MYP HN Biology
MYP Honors Biology is open to motivated students who wish to undertake a more in-depth study of biology. Laboratory work is utilized to stimulate, enhance, and promote critical thinking skills. This course is a combination of teacher-led instruction and student driven investigation, which requires work outside of the classroom every evening to have a better understanding of the in-depth challenging concepts. The course will explore (1) cells and cell processes which include basic biological principles, chemical basis for life, bioenergetics and homeostasis and transport and (2) continuity and unity of life which includes cell growth and reproduction, genetics, evolution and ecology. The course covers the material assessed on the Biology Keystone Exam.
MYP instruction will emphasize IB principles, such as global contexts, Approaches to Learning, international mindedness, the Learner Profile, and development of skills for lifelong learning.
