AP Biology

Course Description:
This course is designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory biology course usually taken by biology majors during their first year. Some AP students, as college freshmen, are permitted to undertake upper-level courses in biology or to register for courses for which biology is a prerequisite. Other students may be fulfilled a basic requirement for a laboratory science course and will be able to undertake other courses to pursue their majors.

The AP biology course is designed to be taken by students after the successful completion of a first course in high school biology and one in high school chemistry. It aims to provide students with the conceptual framework, factual knowledge, and analytical skills necessary to deal critically with the rapidly changing science of biology. A student may be eligible to obtain college credit for this course by taking the Advanced Placement Exam in the spring of the school year.** (Fee required for test)

The instructor will be giving a summer assignment to prospective students, which will be due on the first day of class.

Students and parents must sign AP Statement of Understanding.
