Biology 102
                   WELCOME TO BIOLOGY!
     Biology is the study of life. In this class we will explore the diversity of life forms from the simple cell to complex organisms. We will also study the relationships and interdependence of all living things.
     Biology 102 will satisfy the graduation requirement of one unit of biology. The information posted on this site is intended to help student achieve success in this class. The web page will include objectives, assignments, review activities and links to other biology pages. Daily schedules may change to accommodate the needs of individual classes.
