Welcome to Regents Living Environment & Enriched Regents Living Environment with Ms. Borowicz. Throughout the year we will be studying various topics revolving around the key ideas of this course:
1. Unity & Diversity: Living things are both similar to and different from each other and from other living things.
2. Genetic Continuity: Organisms inherit information in a variety of ways that result in continuity of structure and function between parents and offspring.
3. Evolution: Individual organisms and species change over time.
4. Reproduction and Development: The continuity of life is sustained through reproduction and development.
5. Dynamic Equilibrium: Organisms maintain a dynamic equilibrium that sustains life.
6. Interaction and Interdependence: Plants and animals depend on each other and their physical environment.
7. Human Impact: Human decisions and activities have had a profound impact on the physical and living environment.
8. Inquiry: Scientific inquiry is used to pose questions, seek answers, and develop solutions.
The core curriculum information on each topic can be accessed using the links in the navigation bar to the left.
