Welcome to Living Environment (a.k.a. Biology)
We will cover 8 major topics this year: Scientific Method, Biochemistry, Cells, Genetics, Evolution and Classification, Kingdoms, Human Anatomy, and Ecology.  We will spend time seeing how these topics build upon each other and interact to create the world in which we live.  Students will use texts, lecture notes, activities and laboratory experiments to navigate through the material throughout the school year.

Please be aware that the notes, along with all vocabulary words and definitions is listed under my files in case you lose your copy.

All 4 state labs MUST be completed and accepted along with 30 total lab credits to be eligible for the regents exam in June.
