Dear parents and/or guardians:

My name is Chikezie O. Madu and I will be your child’s Advanced placement Biology teacher for this academic year. I have taught General Science, Physics, Physical Science, Chemistry, Algebra 1 &2, Geometry, Trigonometry, Biology, and AP Biology at different times in the course of a career spanning more than eighteen years.

AP Biology is structured to be the equivalent of a two-semester college biology course usually taken by biology majors during their freshman year in college. At the completion of this course, students are required to take the College Board’s scheduled AP Biology exam in May, and they may earn a college credit if they pass the exam with a 4 or 5. To assist students in their preparation for this test, the format of the assessments used throughout this course will be similar to the AP Biology exam’s assessments.  

This class includes an extensive independent component, and the overall success of the program depends largely on each student meeting his or her individual academic responsibilities. I am very excited and looking forward to having your son or daughter in my class this year and my goal is to help him or her be successful, and enjoy learning biology.

Sincerely,

Chikezie O. Madu, Ph.D.

White Station High School AP/Honors Biology Instructor
