Biology II is an extension of the Biology I course curriculum. Biology II will provide a more in-depth study of material introduced in Biology I. The students will utilize the scientific method to create and conduct research (some with MU researchers!), collect and analyze data, and formulate conclusions to be presented in a formal laboratory research paper. Students will further their knowledge in the areas of ecology, zoology, genetics, and microbiology. The expected materials covered (lesson plan) can be found in the Biology II Course Calendar (located in the Class Downloads below). As with any lesson plans, these may get slightly altered during the course of the week. Any questions should be directed to Mrs. Glenn! :)
