Biology II

2020-2021 Syllabus

Montrose R-14 School

Mr. Foster





Biology I is a science elective course students have the option to take, usually in their junior year.  The course will cover such topics as taxonomy and the human body.




The textbook used for this course is Biology, published by Holt McDougal.  For the ecology unit students will use the Nature Unbound books supplied by the Missouri Conservation Department.  Each student is responsible for his/her book for the year.  If the book is lost or stolen, the student is responsible for the replacement cost.




  Students will receive grades for homework assignments, their science notebook, lab work, and tests.  Tests, of course, will be worth more points than most assignments.


Accurate spelling, grammar, and neatness will be expected on all assignments, and will affect the grade on that assignment.  Although students may occasionally work together on a project, no cheating will be allowed on individual assignments.



Rules of behavior are as follows:

  • Treat everyone with respect and courtesy.
  • Come to class prepared with the appropriate materials and a good attitude.
  • Do not do anything that will interfere with the learning process for anyone including you.
  • Turn in your work on time, neatly done and complete.
  • Follow instructions, and do not make up your own.


Students are expected to avoid the necessity of leaving the classroom to go to the restroom or locker during class time.  They will enter the classroom quietly, be ready to work immediately, and remain seated until dismissed.  No food or drink will be allowed in the classroom. Cell phone use will not be allowed in class.


Since this is a science class, there will be additional rules in regard to safety issues during lab activities.  Students who break these rules will most likely lose the privilege of participating in future lab activities.





I have read the Biology I Syllabus, and I agree to follow the rules listed and to make the most of my time in Biology I class.
