The Advance Placement Biology course gives students the opportunity to pursue college level biology studies and credit while still in high school. This course culminated in the AP Biology exam, which can result in the awarding of university credit. The course follows College Board Advanced Placement guidelines and is divided into three main content areas, Molecules and Cells,
Heredity and Evolution, and Organisms and Populations. This course differs from the Honors Biology by the depth and speed which topics are covered. Experimentation and data analysis are important complements to all concepts. The approach to biology is one of guided reasoning based on observation and experimentation. An array of hands-on activities, research projects, and
laboratories that develop inquiry skills and conceptual understanding are incorporated into the class.
