BIOLOGY I HONORS
The Honors Biology I course involves the same subject topics as the regular Biology course but each is
covered in greater depth and more rigor in order to prepare the student for AP Biology and/or Honors Genetics.
The major objective is to acquaint students with the in depth principles of the life sciences. Key underlying
concepts include genetics, microbiology, cell structure & function, protein expression, and evolution.
Students are expected to learn independently, maintain a class notebook, and log their laboratory experiences.
College Accelerated Program (CAP) credit is available.
NOTE: The New Jersey Biology Competency Test is mandatory.
Through the semester you will be guided through lecture, various individual and group projects/activities, labs, quizzes, and tests.
