Paradigm Biology CourseParadigm’s Principle, Theories and Precepts of Biology has six chapters of text and six companion student activity books.  This course is designed to satisfy most state requirements for one high school biology transcript credit. Students who complete this course will have a strong foundation for college studies in science and theories about the origin of life. The publisher takes a bold approach by challenging popular theories through use of the scientific method, application of DNA, and recent research to point out strengths and weaknesses of theories.

Like the other Paradigm science courses, Biology is methodically formatted in a way that helps with reading comprehension and reading to find answers.
