Welcome to Biology/Life Science.  This course is all about helping you develop an understanding of the living world.  We pay close attention to interactions and relationships among the components of the natural world and human impacts on them.  We use scientific principals, concepts, and methodologies to identify and analyze environmental problems, risks developing as a result of these problems, and possible solutions or prevention strategies.  After taking this course, you should be equipped to make independent and informed decisions about the consequences of their actions on the environment, both as a citizen and a consumer.
