    Prerequisite:  This course is designed for juniors and seniors who have successfully completed Living

    Environment and who might elect an additional biology course to supplement their practical understanding of the human body and may not be interested in, or qualifies for the AP Living Environment course offered.

    This non-lab course will include hands-on activities using laboratory equipment and procedures to expand on the recently abbreviated NYS Living Environment curriculum pertaining to the human body systems and diseases that affect such.  This course will introduce students to an expanded view of the human body and a wide variety of diseases/disorders that they may encounter within their lifetime.
