CP Biology

This course explores biological principles in a comprehensive approach. The course examines: ecology, cell biology, genetics, evolution, microorganisms, plants, vertebrates, and invertebrates. Students' understanding of biology is fostered through laboratory investigations, problem solving, and critical thinking activities. As a result of this course, students explore and explain concepts of biology and its related applications.


The term biology is derived from the Greek word bios, meaning "life" and the suffix -logia, meaning "study of." The term first appeared in 1736 when Linnaeus used "biologi" in his Bibliotheca botanica.
