Pre-AP Biology (Period 1)
This course includes all the concepts of Biology, but with more in-depth study and an expectation of increased homework. It is designed to provide a framework of rigorous academic challenge to prepare students for the AP Biology Exam. Laboratory (or out-of-school fieldwork) is designed to develop a critical approach to high level problem solving. A lab notebook analyzing data with detailed discussion is required. Oral, written, study and research skills are emphasized through various types of activities. Excellent study habits are imperative.
