COURSE DESCRIPTION

IB Biology SL
Grades 12

Prerequisite:Biology I, Chemistry I, and Physics

Biology Standard Level is a life science course established by the International Baccalaureate Organization. In Diploma Programme biology, it is hoped that students will acquire a body of facts and at the same time develop a broad, general understanding of the principles of the subject. There are four basic biological concepts that run throughout the course: structure and function; universality versus diversity; and equilibrium within systems. Students also study cells, the chemistry of life, genetics, ecology, evolution, human health, and physiology as well as additional IB topics as determined by the instructor.
