Live Classes with Instructor: This online homeschool high school chemistry course is a live, group class that meets regularly on Zoom with Dr. Scott, the course instructor.
Materials Included: The online class has 9 printable pdf files including worksheets, answer keys, class notes, and a final exam. Learners typically spend 1.5 to 3 hours per lesson, which includes combined live in-class time and out-of-class time.
Time Commitment: Learners typically spend 2-4 hours per week, which includes combined live in-class time and out-of-class time.
Course duration: There are 8 lessons, and we cover a lesson about every week of live classes, meeting twice per week.
Instructor Support Included: Dr. Scott teaches the live class personally. He is available for questions and evaluates worksheets by email. There are grades and a certificate of completion at the end.
Learners completing Cell Bio Part A will be able to:
Learn to draw prokaryotes, which are older forms of single celled organisms. They lack a nucleus to hold their DNA.
Learn to draw eukaryotes, which are organisms having nuclei to hold their DNA in the center of their cells. We’ll draw and learn the function of the other organelles including the cell membrane, nuclear membrane, DNA, nucleolus, cytoplasm, mitochondria, ribosomes, lysosomes, peroxisomes, smooth endoplasmic reticulum, rough endoplasmic reticulum, centrioles, pores, vacuoles, and the Golgi apparatus.
We’ll learn to distinguish and draw the differences between plant and animal cells. We will learn about the role of individual cells in multicellular lifeforms. We will discuss chlorophyll and chloroplasts.
We will discuss various types of human cells including brain cells (dendrites), skin cells (melanocytes), red blood cells (erythrocytes), and white blood cells (leukocytes).
We will discuss the nucleic acids DNA and RNA. We will discuss the various forms of DNA, including chromosomes and chromatin fiber.
We will learn about how lipids organize into bilayers to form membranes such as the cell membrane. We will learn about hydrophobic and hydrophilic interactions.
Hi, I’m Dr. Scott, the course instructor and author of the Cell Bio Part A, a homeschool biology online class with a secular curriculum.
I’m a former college professor that knows how to make learning science fun and easy. My courses will show you how to learn biology, and I guarantee they’ll prepare you for future science classes. The easy way.
