This unit, using videos, an interactive program, and research, allows exploration of the cell from the first of observation to the cell to the final project of describing how the parts of the cell interact and work together as a function of the cell. This is the first time students have been asked to achieve this level of understanding of the cell.

This unit introduces the theory of evolution taking into consideration the sensitive nature of this topic for some students. Students are given ample opportunity to share their preconceptions before diving into the scientific evidence for evolution. Students are able to use simulations to experience survival of the fittest and draw conclusions based on what they experience.

This unit is designed to guide upper-level/AP biology students through the four different categories of biological molecules (carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids). Topics within the unit are divided among the students so that each student has one chunk of information they are expected to master.
