Welcome to Mr. Adamosky's Biology website. Here you will be able to find valuable resources that can help aid in your success in class. On the various pages for each topic, I have notes, PowerPoint, links to videos, animations, interactive tutorials, virtual labs, online practice quizzes, and other helpful sites.
This course is a standards-based study of living things: origins, structures, functions, heredity, growth and development, interactions among, and behavior of living things. Content is built around major biological concepts such as biochemistry and the biology of cells, genetics, evolution, ecology, physiologic systems, and the diversity of living things. Emphasis is placed on the utilization of mathematical, analytical, data acquisition, and communication skills as well as interdisciplinary approaches to discovery. Concepts and skills are reinforced by a strong emphasis on hands-on laboratory experiences and the integration of other branches of science. Applications to society, individuals, and the utilization of technology are included, as is consideration of the impact of human activity on biological systems.
