Enroll in Life Science with Dolphin STEM Academy

Course Overview

Life Science deals with the study of all types of living organisms, such as
microorganisms, plants, animals, and humans. In Life Science B, you will learn how life
evolved on Earth. You’ll analyze fossil data to determine the evidence it provides about
evolution. You’ll study ecosystems, the flow of energy in an ecosystem, and the various
relationships in an ecosystem. In addition, you will discover the interdependence that is
present in all ecosystems. At the end of the semester, you’ll determine the effects that
humans and environmental factors have on the ecosystems and devise solutions to
protect the biodiversity of ecosystems from these effects.

Course Goals

By the end of this course, you will be able to do the following:
Model the geological process that makes fossils from leaves.
Explain how the characteristics of living and extinct organisms can be used to construct an evolutionary lineage.
Classify organisms based on their shared characteristics, and explain why embryos
and anatomical similarities of different species provide evidence of evolution.
Explain the role of photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy, and
develop a model that shows how organisms use food to create energy for growth and development.
Plan an investigation that answers a scientific question about the growth needs of yeast.
Construct an explanation that relates the influence of environment and genes on the growth of organisms.
Identify relationships between organisms in ecosystems, and analyze the cause-and-effect relationships between the availability of resources and the growth of organisms in an ecosystem.
Understand how changes to the physical or biological components of an ecosystem
affect populations of organisms, and research one effect that humans have on the ocean’s ecosystem.
Evaluate solutions to maintain biodiversity in an ecosystem and design a solution to
an environmental problem in an ecosystem.
