Students perform laboratory projects. Highlights of the course include urine analysis, bacteriological work, fruit fly experiments, DNA extraction and microscope work with protozoans. The class will concentrate on bench work in the lab plus an academic component on which labs are based. Students' work will include diagrams, daily logs of experiments, written analysis, discussion and special projects. Exams occur as appropriate at the end of a unit. Major projects or logs may count as an exam. Students are expected to participate in discussions and work intelligently and maturely in the laboratory. There is a small cost for replacement materials. This course is one of several possible prerequisites for AP Biology. While this course is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors, placement preference is given to upperclassmen. (One term, fall term only)
