AP Biology


Grades: 11 or 12

Subject Area/Course Credit: Science, 1 credit

Prerequisite: C or above in Honors Biology OR  a science teacher recommendation. Those currently in Honors Biology also need a teacher recommendation.

AP Biology is designed to be the equivalent of a general Biology course taken during the first year of university in the United States and prepares students to take the AP exam in May. 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. In this course, students will learn about the core scientific principles, theories and processes governing living organisms, biological systems and natural phenomena. Students will be asked to develop advanced reasoning and inquiry skills as they design experiments, collect and analyse data using mathematics and other methods, and interpret that data to draw conclusions.
