AP Biology

Course Description

This course investigates creation, through a scientific lens, investigating contemporary topics such as evolution, natural selection, genetics, and human behavior. Significant emphasis will be placed on molecular biology and biochemical reactions at the cellular level, applying them to myriad biological phenomena. The main areas of study are evolution, energy strategies, heritability, and communication. With a tremendous breadth and depth of material to cover, the pace is rigorous, and the student must devote himself or herself to a daily study of the material. Laboratory work is integrated into the course and is required of all students.
