Grade 10 - Science

Biology A - Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)

Biology is a science dedicated to studying all forms of life on Earth. You are probably familiar with life on a large scale, but do you know what makes up life? This course will teach you about the smallest building block of lifeā€”the cell. You will learn what makes a cell, how cells are built and their functions, as well as how mutations in cells can cause them to change genetically. Course Goals: By the end of the course the student will be able to do the following: Describe the basic building blocks of life. Describe the structure and functions of a cell. Identify the chemicals which make up individual cells. Explain how gene-based inheritance in genetics works. Explain how mutations affect molecular genetics. Explain the processes of macro and micro evolution.
