The Credit Recovery courses are set up to resemble the standard Lincoln Interactive classes.  Students have access to all course content. The only required assignments in these courses are the Mid-Unit Quizzes, Unit Exams, and the Final Exam.  Any additional assignment completed outside of the required will calculate into the overall score of the course. 

PA Biology is designed to prepare students for the Biology Keystone Exam.  PA Biology contains 16 Keystone group assessments per part, each with 2 short answers and one extended essay question. 

Before beginning Biology Part 1, students will be required to have successfully completed all required middle school science and math courses.  Biology Part 1 will cover a wide range of concepts in the field of biology.  Students will first be introduced to the study of biology and its four unifying themes.  Students will review the scientific method and how it will be utilized in this course.  Students will also discover how various topics of chemistry are incorporated into the field of biology. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the concept of the cell, including cell structure and function, how cells receive their energy, and how cells grow and divide. Finally, the concept of the cell will be extended and students will explore the concept of genetics.  In this part of the course, students will discuss the process of meiosis, Mendelian genetics, and how humans inherit traits. The course will conclude with the structure and mechanisms of DNA, as well as the role of biotechnology in today's society.  This part of the course includes both online lessons, textbook readings, and the opportunity for hands-on learning through labs.
