AP Biology

Course Number: 
1715

Typically taken after a year of high school biology and chemistry and designed to parallel college level introductory biology courses, AP Biology courses stress basic facts and their synthesis into major biological concepts and themes. Three general areas are covered: molecules and cells (including biological chemistry and energy transformation); genetics and evolution; and organisms and populations (i.e., taxonomy, plants, animals, and ecology). AP Biology courses include college level laboratory experiments. . This course is intended to prepare students for the optional Advanced Placement Exam in this subject and should follow the published College Board guidelines
