Enroll in Health Science 1 with Dolphin STEM Academy
This one-semester course is intended as a practical, hands-on guide to help you understand the
skills required to achieve success in modern-day careers. This course has 12 lessons organized
into three units, plus three Unit Activities. Each lesson contains one or more Lesson Activities.
This course will cover various topics in health science, such as biomolecules, biological and
chemical processes, and various diseases.
You will submit the Unit Activity documents to your teacher, and you will grade your work in the
Lesson Activities by comparing them with given sample responses. The Unit Activities
(submitted to the teacher) and the Lesson Activities (self-checked) are the major components of
this course. There are other assessment components, namely the mastery test questions that
feature along with the lesson; the pre- and post-test questions that come at the beginning and
end of the unit, respectively; and an end-of-semester test. All of these tests are a combination of
simple multiple-choice questions and technology enhanced (TE) questions.
This course will help you meet the following goals:
Analyze the structure and functions of amino acids, proteins, simple and complex
carbohydrates, lipids, biological membranes, DNA, and RNA.
Discuss vitamins, coenzymes, and cofactors.
Describe metabolic pathways and processes.
Examine the seven biological processes of the human body.
