Biology is a fascinating subject. It has many applications that transcend society. From agriculture to medicine, many of the applications of biology have a profound impact on our daily lives. Whether it is the serendipitous discovery of the effects platinum containing compounds inhibiting the growth of cells in culture, or the engineering of a drought resistant crop that enables populations of people to survive and prosper in an arid environment, biology is like no other science. The scientific study of life requires the student to have a working knowledge of physics, mathematics, and chemistry, and like no other subject, biology ties all of these disciplines together in fundamental ways that allows us to make sense of the living world. As a biology teacher, it is my job to enlighten and inform students of how the science impacts their daily lives and how it is related to many other areas of science. Biology is the study of life and the processes that keep it going. Being one of the most fundamental sciences, biology is unique in that it requires students to be able to read well and think critically, to be able to analyze situations and relate them to other areas of science, and to interpret data both qualitatively and quantitatively. Moreover, biology is unique in that it requires students to have a working knowledge of math, chemistry, and to a lesser extent physics. Having the ability to tie these three sciences together and relate them to biology is extremely important. Biology itself is central to many other areas of science such as genetics, microbiology, biochemistry and ecology to name a few. Thus, building a solid core in biology is extremely important because it not only helps students make sense of the world around them, it also lays the foundations for future coursework. In addition to the general coursework, biology requires students to develop good laboratory skills. The skills learned in this course will be used repeatedly throughout your time in science. As such, developing good skills now will help you immensely when taking lab-based courses in the future.
