The Advanced Placement Biology course includes topics regularly covered in a college biology course for science majors. AP Biology differs significantly from the usual first high school course in biology with respect to the kind of textbook used, the range and depth of topics covered, the type of laboratory work done by the students, and the time and effort required of students. The three major topics covered are molecules and cells, heredity, evolution, and organisms and populations. Student proficiency is assessed through the required laboratory work and examinations constructed according to the College Board guidelines. Students are encouraged to take the Advanced Placement Examination in May. Honors Biology or Accelerated Biology and Honors Chemistry or Accelerated Chemistry are the required prerequisites.
This is a course which includes studies in cell biology, genetics, classification, microbiology, plants, animals, human biology and ecology. Laboratory investigations will be a major part of the couse and may include the dissection of a fish, frog, and fetal pig, as well as selected invertebrate animals. Heavy emphasis will be placed on content. The content will be treated in depth as is recommended for the science oriented student.
This course is designed for tenth grade students who have satisfactorily completed accerated science.
