Clarkston Jr. High Science

Biotech pilot - This is a two trimester biology course that uses technology  for instruction. The course will still cover the state mandated curriculum but will use netbooks instead of textbooks. 

IB Biology Prep - This is a two trimester course in which students will cover the state mandated curriculum while developing the thinking and study skills that will prepare them for the IB Diploma Programme in the 11th and 12th grades.  The IB Programme is rigorous, emphasizing depth of thought as well as breadth of knowledge,and it offers independant thinking and study habits. 

This is a required two term course that covers the foundational concepts of biological science. Topics of study will include biochemistry, cells-structure and function, cell energetics, comparative structure and functions of living things, human systems, homeostasis, ecosystems, population ecology, cell division, protein synthesis, genetics, and evolution. Inquiry skills, organization, and interpretation of data in the laboratory and classroom are an integral part of the course.
