• BSCS Biology: A Human Approach is a standards-based, introductory biology program appropriate for students of all abilities. Developed with a grant from the National Science Foundation, the program involves students in conceptual biology by using a human perspective, organizes content around six unifying themes and teaches through inquiry, hands-on activities and an explicit 5-E learning cycle. The thematic approach encourages depth of coverage rather than breadth and, with its emphasis on humans, the text presents biology in a context that will be relevant to students' lifelong learning.

  • GeoPhysical Science is a broad subject that deals with the world around us. It includes geology (study of the Earth and its processes), meteorology (study of weather), astronomy (study of the universe), and oceanography (study of the oceans). Lectures, labs, activities, projects, research, and group work will all be used to learn about these subjects. Lecture, labs, projects and/or research will also be a part of the class in addition to daily classwork/homework
