Life Sciences 11


Asher Weinerman (Learning Centre)




Students can take the course in the Learning Centre, which is an asynchronous learning environment with individual support.


Unit Assignments and Unit Tests (take home and in-class supervised).


Life Sciences 11 offers students an opportunity to learn that life is a result of interactions at the molecular and cellular level, evolution occurs at the population level, and organisms are grouped according to common characteristics.  This class provides authentic learning experiences as our students are not only given the opportunity to engage in hands-on experimental activities, but they are also given guidance on how to effectively communicate their findings to their peers and instructor.

The following concepts will be covered in the course:

  • the genetic basis of evolution
  • taxonomy and viruses
  • the world of microbes
  • fungi and aquatic plants
  • terrestrial plants
  • plant structure and function
  • early invertebrates
  • invertebrates with coeloms
  • the chordates
