Biology is a branch of science that deals with life and living things and examines the structure and functions of living things, their relations with the living and non-living environment, their changes, and diversity. It has many sub-disciplines such as medicine, pharmacy, agriculture, veterinary, molecular genetics, embryology, and ecology, and it will change our understanding of nature and our lives with the information it provides.
Revolutionary developments such as the discovery of antibiotics and DNA structure and the analysis of the human genome are closely related to our lives. We see that biology, together with physics and chemistry, appears in many areas of our lives and completely surrounds us.
We need to take our place in society as conscious individuals who can follow the developments in the field of biology and also produce and use scientific knowledge.
For this reason, we aim to ensure that our students grow up as
- Environmentally sensitive,
- Science literate; able to understand and explain scientific concepts and facts,
- Perceiving the events encountered in daily life with the nature of science and scientific knowledge, qualitatively or quantitatively observing, forming hypotheses as a result of their observations, and making explanatory explanations about the world.
- Able to create and implement experiments based entirely on observations using electronic sensors or by direct measurement
- Examines and analyzes in terms of patterns, trends, and inconsistencies using the data and database it has reached.
- In this sense, within the scope of the IB Learner Profile, those who are curious and who research, question, take risks when necessary and use initiative, can solve problems, are open to teamwork, and can work in and out of disciplines by collaborating.
- Since science progresses thanks to new technological developments, it is able to be followed technological developments, adapt to innovations, and use new technologies.
- Developed thinking skills, social skills, communication skills, self-management skills, and research skills to be successful in university education and later life individuals.
- We teach our students not only biology topics but also the use/applications of the German language and biology terminology in German.
