Prerequisite: Biology (as recommended by AP) and Chemistry (previously or concurrently)
Course Description: AP Biology is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester college introductory biology course usually taken by biology majors during their freshman year. This science course is for students who are highly motivated and have a strong interest in science. Major topics of study include biochemistry, cells, cellular energetics, genetics, evolution, classification, organism structure/function, and ecology. As in college biology, the AP Biology course is designed to have both a lecture and a lab component. Labs conducted by AP Biology students are the equivalent of those experienced by college biology students.
