Honors Biology has a similar curriculum to Biology but is distinguished by its faster pace and depth of study. Material is emphasized through a deeper laboratory approach, where students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations. Students should expect to complete reading assignments outside of class related to scientific articles and literature, as well as participate in research-based projects. Students will write formal lab reports and analyze scientific data throughout the course.
The Honors Biology course is recommended for students who plan to take Advanced Placement science courses or those who are interested in pursuing science at the college level.
