This will begin with a summary of how atoms can form organic molecules, how these organic molecules form cellular components, how cellsform tissues, and tissues living systems. The study of the diversity of life will include an in depth analysis of adaptive and structural characteristics found in each of the five kingdoms of life.

The study of the diversity of life will include an in depth analysisof adaptive and structural characteristics found in each of the five kingdomsof life. Honors Biology will involve more scientific reading and writing. Inaddition, the mastery of material is expected. Because of this, virtually allexams are explanation based and focused upon the application of acquiredknowledge.
