Biologie 12/Biologie avancée 12

Second Semester

Biologie 12/Biologie avancée 12 is intended for students in French immersion and follows the same course outline as Biology 12. This an academic course that explores, in greater detail, the concept of dynamic equilibrium, reproduction and development, genetic continuity,  as well as modern perspectives on evolution. Dynamic equilibrium is explores the nervous and endocrine systems and their hormonal and nervous responses to internal and external stimuli. Reproduction and development investigates the concept of the formation of gametes, cellular division and the formation of an embryo as well as the implications of chromosomal disorders and improper cellular and meiotic division. Genetic continuity examines genetic inheritance at both the phenotypic , physical traits, and molecular, DNA/ RNA, level as well as their impact on biological diversity and heritable traits.  Evolution looks into the historical and modern viewpoints and evidence of evolution and their significance on the adaptation and change of different organisms at the plant, animal, bacterial and viral level.

The main concepts provide connections between units of study, fostering an awareness of the tremendous impact of biology and technology upon society. Throughout the course, students will be guided to develop their critical thinking skills using virtual labs and activities with the neuron, hormonal feedback loops, research and analysis of biotechnology as well as independent and critical thinking.


Additional course details and documents are available on the Nova Scotia Curriculum site’s Biologie 12/avancée Biologie 12.
