The program addresses two goals for Maryland.
- Goal 1. The student will demonstrate ways of thinking and acting inherent in the practice of science. the student will use the language and instruments of science to collect, organize, interpret, calculate, and communicate information.

The Maryland Academic Support Program for Biology HSA Recovery is divided into two major parts: Biology and Ecology. In addition, you'll find a materials list, pacing guide, graphic organizers, pre- and post-tests, and additional lab and instructional activities.
