I am a freshman in high school. Although I am not taking science this year, I would like to know what the easiest way to understand biology is? Is there an easy way?

At its basic level, biology is the study of life and living things. That encompasses much material. Hopefully an introductory biology class will try to focus on the kinds of things that are common to much of biology, an example of this is genetics since all living things we know about have genetic material. This probably does not answer your question. I suppose the easiest way to do anything is to find something about it that is enjoyable. That often is different for different people.
