This course is designed as an alternative to standard biology and covering the same topics with an emphasis on the study of the human body. Observe the evolution of the human body systems by comparing them to other living organisms. The course also includes molecular and cell biology, genetics, classification, evolution, ecology and a brief study of plants. Two state tests – one for Human Biology in January and one for Biology in May. Select this course or Biology, but not both. This course no longer fulfills the requirement for the Regents’ Scholarship.
