Discovering Design with Biology Set
Discovering Design with Biology is a laboratory-based high school biology course that is the first biology course a college-bound student should take.
This set included both the textbook and the Answer Key & Tests
It gives the student an introduction to how living organisms are designed, how they interact with one another, and how they interact with their physical environment. Students are taught how biologists classify life, the chemical processes that make life possible, the structures of RNA and DNA, and the designs of the different cells found in living organisms. Students also learn the means by which photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and cellular reproduction occur.
They then learn the current state of biotechnology. With the molecular and cellular basis of life covered, the students are then surveyed about the different kinds of organisms found in nature: archaea, bacteria, protists, fungi, invertebrates, vertebrates, and plants. The students then learn the biogeochemical cycles that keep environments hospitable to life, which leads to a discussion of ecosystems.
Throughout the course, students see that life is the result of design and that organisms have been given the ability to adapt to their surroundings. In addition, they learn various problems associated with modern evolutionary synthesis.
