Biology 20-30: Background, Exemplars and Resources.
Cormie, George; And Others
This document is designed to provide practical information for teaching the Biology 20-30 Program of Studies. The first section provides an overview of Biology 20, explaining the program philosophy and depth of coverage of some of the objectives. The use of concept connections and teaching a course around major science themes is described, as well as how the program articulates with the junior and senior high science courses. Section two contains four units. Unit one, "The Biosphere," demonstrates the nature of science through the use of model building. Unit two, "Energy Flows and Cellular Matter," deals with energy and matter cycling through the subcellular systems. Unit three, "Energy and Matter Exchange in Ecosystems", provides a linkage between the biosphere and the cellular phenomena discussed in the two previous units by studying energy and matter flow in certain diverse ecosystems. Unit four, "Energy and Matter Exchange by the Human Organism," examines physiological processes that mediate the interactions between organisms and their environment. The final section provides detailed information on a great variety of resources that support the implementation of this program. (ZWH)
