In this course students will learn about what living things are made of, while exploring what cells are and some of the processes that make them work. Students will learn how our bodies maintain a constant internal environment and how we have evolved to operate that way.
Students deconstruct problems and use scientific methods to design investigations and critically evaluate the results they obtain. They work and communicate with others on group tasks. Students explore the bi-directional relationship between science and society.
