The unit starts off by defining cells, and looking at how cells interact with their environments through cellular transport. Next, students look at the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells and then study the structures and functions of the organelles in these cells. The unit ends with a comparison of plant and animal cells and a look at how unicellular organisms carry out all life functions with just one cell.
This unit will also look at the cell cycle of the body cell and the steps of cell division for germ cells. It also considers why one type of cell division is sufficient, but two different type are needed for multicellular, sexually reproducing organisms.

This course is designed to familiarize students with the concepts and skills associated with Heredity. The unit on Heredity is very interesting and informative. It explains heredity in a very simple manner.

This course will review major ecological concepts, identify the techniques used by ecologists, provide an overview of local and global environmental issues, and examine individual, group and governmental activities important for protecting natural ecosystems. The course has been designed to provide technical information, to direct the student toward pertinent literature,to identify problems and issues, to utilize research methodology for the study of natural ecosystems, and to consider appropriate solutions and analytical techniques.

Students will investigate a number of introductory items to the content of physics. Key vocabulary will include motion, speed, velocity, force, mass and acceleration. Students will solve algebraic math problems with help and support. Understanding how objects in motion behave and interact with one another will support student investigation in a number of our other units throughout the year.

This section of the course contains Information on the Introduction to the IB course focus information for those in the MYP program.
