AP Biology is a college level course for students of high ability, interest, and motivation . Students who score sufficiently high on the NAPT Test may receive college credit in biology which most universities & colleges accept. Subject matter includes molecular and cellular biology, organism biology, and population biology. Chemistry should be taken either previous or concurrently with the AP course. Students will be required to take the AP exam in May. Students will be expected to independently study scientific concepts and register while collaboratively create scientific investigations and complete projects during the school year. Students needing assistance will be expected to contact the instructor before its absolutely necessary as an AP course is highly rigorous and challenging.
Note: Animals may be dissected in this course. Alternatives to dissection are available. A summer assignment will be given and due the first day of school.
