Cougar in a tree.

Welcome to the Nimitz Ninth Grade Biology Department

Biology is the study of living organisms. We enrich our cougars with information that helps them understand the underlying mechanisms of life not visible to the eye. We challenge our students to expand their knowledge-base by bringing the curriculum to life. The goal of the Nimitz Ninth Grade Biology Department is to establish a strong academic understanding of the nature of scientific inquiry, the structure and function of cells and viruses, the growth and development of organisms, principals of genetics, biological evolution, taxonomy,energy transfers in living organisms, homeostasis, ecosystems and more.
