AP BiologyAP Biology is an intensive course designed to be the equivalent of an introductory biology course taken in college. The emphasis is on developing an understanding of biological concepts rather than an accumulation of facts. The student should understand and appreciate the science of biology as a process and a personal experience in scientific inquiry that develops their problem solving and critical thinking skills. This course also prepares the high school student to take the AP exam given in May.
Major themes include:
- The Chemistry of Life
- Cell Energetics
- Molecular Genetics
- Evolutionary Biology
- Diversity of Organisms
- Structure and Function of Plants and Animals
