Course Description for AP Biology:

This Advanced Placement biology class will provide students with an expansive background in biology. This is a college-level course and it will be an intense class. I have high expectations for students. It will be necessary for students to spend time outside of class studying and reviewing. A general rule of one hour of study time for each hour of class time is suggested. AP Biology is a class in which students must take responsibility for their own learning.

This course will emphasize the eight major themes in biology. These themes are: Science as a Process, Evolution, Energy Transfer, Continuity and Change, Relationship of structure to function, Regulation, Interdependence in nature, and Science, Technology and Society. These themes will be discussed initially and continuously discussed throughout the year.
