This yearlong introductory lab science explores core concepts in biology and the relevance of these topics to the lives of students. Students will explore basic biochemistry, principles of ecology, conservation biology and the impacts of climate change on ecosystems, cell structure and function, metabolism and energy transformation, cell division and the regulation of the cell cycle, and classical genetics. The second semester will cover topics in molecular biology, evolution and classification, organismal biology, and anatomy and physiology.
This course emphasizes both a conceptual and quantitative understanding of chemistry. Atomic theory, chemical bonding, acid-base behavior, oxidation-reduction, and other kinds of reactions are studied. Students conduct many laboratory experiments to develop an understanding of chemical principles as related to everyday life.
This introductory physics course includes the study of motion, forces, momentum, energy, electric charge, circuits, magnetism, and waves. The emphasis is on conceptualization and rigorous problem-solving. Analysis of experimental data is used to construct mathematical and conceptual models. Lab activities and demonstrations are major components of the course.
