Dr. Burt

email:  jwburt@gmail.com

 

Welcome to Grade 11 Biology! This course will help you gain a deeper understanding of the processes that occur in biological systems.  Students will study theory and conduct investigations in the areas of biodiversity; evolution; genetic processes; the structure and function of animals; and the anatomy, growth, and function of plants. The course focuses on the theoretical aspects of the topics under study and there is a strong emphasis placed on developing those skills related to scientific investigation.
