In the first semester section of this comprehensive course, students investigate the chemistry of living things: the cell, genetics, evolution, the structure and function of living things, and ecology. The program consists of indepth online lessons, including extensive animations, an associated reference book, collaborative explorations, virtual laboratories, and hands-on laboratory experiments students can conduct at home. In this credit recovery course, students will progress through content on an individual need basis. Required content will be assigned based on previous performance in the regular Biology A course. Students will be assigned lessons and objectives not mastered during the original Biology A course. This course can be taken only as Pass/Fail option.
