ISBN 978-0-435994-39-6Course Description and Objectives:Through studying any of the group 4 subjects, students should become aware of how scientistswork and communicate with each other. While the “scientific method” may take on a variety offorms, it is the emphasis on practical approach through experimental work that distinguishes thegroup 4 subjects from other disciplines and characterizes each of the subjects within group 4.1. Provide opportunities for scientific study and creativity within a globalcontext, which will stimulate and challenge students.2. Provide a body of knowledge, methods and techniques, which characterizescience and technology.3. Develop an ability to analyze, evaluate and synthesize scientific information.4. Enable students to apply and use a body of knowledge, methods and techniques whichcharacterize science and technology.5. Engender an awareness of the need for, and the value of, effective collaboration andcommunication during scientific activities.6. Develop experimental and investigative scientific skills.7. Develop and apply the students’ information technology skills in the study of science.8. Raise awareness of the moral, ethical, social, economic and environmental implications of usingscience and technology.9. Develop an appreciation of the possibilities and limitations associated with science andscientists.10. Encourage an understanding of the relationships between scientific disciplines and theoverarching nature of the scientific method.
IB Biology is a science course for advanced students, and is designed to promote more high-levelthinking as well as more independent research and learning. IB Biology is a class designed by theInternational Baccalaureate Organization (IBO).In order to receive the IB Diploma, students have specific requirements including ExternalAssessments, Internal Assessments, and a Group project. External Assessments consists of three(3) papers completed by the student in the form of a multiple-choice test, and two short answertests, covering the core material, as well as two options, chosen by your instructor. InternalAssessments are student designed and implemented experiments that are completed in class andgraded by the teacher as well as the IBO. The External Assessment is weighted 76% of the 1 to 7IBO grade, and the Internal Assessment is weighted 24%. The assessment procedure will bediscussed at length at the beginning of the semester. In order to get the IB Diploma, you mustcomplete the all Internal and External Assessments, which will comprise your IB Grade on a 1 to 7scale. The score you receive in Biology, as well as the points you accrue on assessments in yourother IB classes, must total up to 24 points in order to be awarded the diploma.Grading (Grade received within the school):Formative AssessmentsSummative Assessments25%75%The course grade will be broken up equally (50%) between semesters.IB Grading Scale:Internal AssessmentsPapers 1, 2 and 324%76%Homework and Make-up Work Policy:Makeup work is to be completed within 5 days. It is the student’s responsibili ty to schedule makeup times for tests with the teacher. Long-term projects must be turned in on the previouslyscheduled date. If a student is absent on that day, they must turn in the project the day they returnto receive full credit. For every day late thereafter, their possible points will be decreased by aletter grade. A daily synopsis of class and any handouts given out in class will be posted on Angel.Below are the following websites, where these resources can be .ibo.org/ (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme website)Class Rules:1. Respect the teacher and your peers.2. Be prepared to learn with all necessary materials needed every day.3. Follow all lab safety rules during lab activities.5. Be responsible and accountable for your actions.
Items needed for class:Students are expected to have a 3-ring binder (1.5 inch), writing utensils, and a jump drive.Course Topics to be covered: We will cover all six Core topics below as well as the Option topicsfor extensional learning during the course of the entire year.Topic One: Statistical AnalysisTopic Two: CellsCell theory, prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells, membranes, cell divisionTopic Three: The chemistry of lifeChemical elements and water, Carbohydrates, lipids and proteins, DNA structure, DNAReplication, Transcription and Translation, Enzymes, Cell respiration, PhotosynthesisTopic Four: GeneticsChromosomes, genes, alleles and mutations, Meiosis, Theoretical genetics, Geneticengineering and biotechnologyTopic Five: Ecology and evolutionCommunities and ecosystems, the greenhouse effect, populations, evolution, classificationTopic Six: Human health and physiologyDigestion, The transport system, Defense against infectious disease, Gas exchange,Nerves, hormones and homeostasis, ReproductionOption D: EvolutionOrigin of life on earth, species and speciation, human evolutionOption G: EcologyCommunity ecology, ecosystems and biomes, Impacts of humans on ecosystemsGrading explanationsSummative grades are assignments/assessments such as unit tests, projects, essays, research papers,and presentations which may integrate multiple standards. These grades reflect student mastery ofstandards after the learning activity is completed and count as 75% of each semester average.Formative grades are assignments such as homework, class work, quizzes, drafts or portions of essays,projects, research papers, and presentations. They provide practice while learning. These assignments,observations, and conversations are used to inform both the teacher and student about the learningprocess and lead to potential success on summative assessments. They count as 25% of each semesteraverage.The End-of-Course Test (EOCT) is a cumulative standardized assessment which counts as 20% of theoverall course average. It is given upon completion of a specific course. EOCT courses are determined bystate graduation requirements.Work Habits are behaviors that have the potential to increase academic achievement, promote lifelonglearning, and foster personal accountability.
Middle and High School Work Habit Categories and Scoring1: Does not meet 2: Successful 3: ExceedsResponsibility (RE)The student adapts to classroom practices.1. Requires frequent redirection; strays off-task; disrupts learning environment; fails to follow classprocedures.2. Is a self-starter; remains on-task; asks questions for clarifications when needed; appliesstrategies for meeting learning goals; follows class procedures.3. Displays independent initiative; maximizes opportunities; solves problems.Participation (PA)The student pursues learning through active involvement.1. Disengages from the learning environment; responds only to teacher prompts.2. Engages in activities and discussions.3. Leads others to participate; explores new class ideas and approaches.Work Habit Categories and Scoring 1: non-compliant; 2: successful; 3: initiatingAssignment Completion (AC)The student completes work by the designated time/date and according to directions.1. Fails to complete assignments or submit work; struggles to follow directions.2. Produces completed work on a consistent basis by the designated time/date; followsdirections.3. Demonstrates new applications and examples of standard; exceeds assignment expectations;extends personal learning.(2 is the standard.)Interpersonal Skills (IS)The student interacts with others to create a positive learning environment.1. Lacks flexibility when working with peers; isolates self.2. Works well with peers; listens and speaks respectfully; questions ideas rather than theperson.3. Adjusts to a variety of classroom roles; mediates; influences others to learn.
