About the course

This course furthers students’ understanding of the processes that occur in biological systems. Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biodiversity; evolution; genetic processes; the structure and function of animals; and the anatomy, growth, and function of plants. The course focuses on the theoretical aspects of the topics under study, and helps students refine skills related to scientific investigation.

Overrall expectations

By the end of the course you will:

Scientific Investigation Skills & Career Exploration

By the end of this course, students will:

  • demonstrate scientific investigation skills (related to both inquiry and research) in the four areas of skills (initiating and planning, performing and recording, analysing and interpreting, and communicating);
  • identify and describe careers related to the fields of science under study, and describe the contributions of scientists, including Canadians, to those fields.
Diversity Of Living Things

By the end of this course, students will:

  • analyse the effects of various human activities on the diversity of living things;
  • investigate, through laboratory and/or field activities or through simulations, the principles of scientific classification, using appropriate sampling and classification techniques;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the diversity of living organisms in terms of the principles
    of taxonomy and phylogeny.

By the end of this course, students will:

  • analyse the economic and environmental advantages and disadvantages of an artificial selection technology, and evaluate the impact of environmental changes on natural selection and endangered species;
  • investigate evolutionary processes, and analyse scientific evidence that supports the theory of evolution;
  • demonstrate an understanding of the theory of evolution, the evidence that supports it, and some of the mechanisms by which it occurs
Genetic Processes

By the end of this course, students will:

  • evaluate the importance of some recent contributions to our knowledge of genetic processes, and analyse social and ethical implications of genetic and genomic research;
  • investigate genetic processes, including those that occur during meiosis, and analyse data to solve basic genetics problems involving monohybrid and dihybrid crosses;
  • demonstrate an understanding of concepts, processes, and technologies related to the transmission of hereditary characteristics.
Animals: Structure & Function

By the end of this course, students will:

  • investigate, through laboratory inquiry or computer simulation, the functional responses of the respiratory & circulatory systems of animals, & the relationships between their respiratory, circulatory, & digestive systems;
  • analyse the relationships between changing societal needs, technological advances, and our understanding of internal systems of humans;
  • demonstrate an understanding of animal anatomy and physiology, and describe disorders of the respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems.
Plants, Anatomy, Growth And Function

By the end of this course, students will

  • demonstrate an understanding of the diversity of vascular plants, including their structures, internal transport systems, and their role in maintaining biodiversity.
  • evaluate the importance of sustainable use of plants to Canadian society & other cultures;
  • investigate the structures and functions of plant tissues, & factors affecting plant growth;
