    Biology I is a survey of the structures and functions of living things and their interactions with and within their environment. Through regular laboratory and field investigations, students will recognize that organisms are made of cells which are composed of the same materials and limited by the same physical laws as all other matter. Students will relate these discoveries to the functions of cells, tissues, organs, and systems within various species of organisms. Students will also discuss the roles of organisms within populations, communities, and ecosystems of the biosphere. Students will reinforce these concepts through review of the history and development of biological knowledge, the identification of biology in various careers, and the discussion of the role of biology in health and social issues.
