AP Biology (UC/CSU) 10-12

An advanced level biology course designed to be equivalent to a college introductory biology course. This course differs from CP Biology in the depth of study and amount of quantitative analysis in the laboratory work. We will complete all 12 AP labs, going into depth on topics such as genetics and DNA, enzyme function, photosynthesis and more. The course is fast paced and students need to be prepared. The course is intended to prepare students to pass the AP exam in May (which may make students eligible for college credit). Students are expected to take the AP exam in May.

Recommendation: Grade of “C” or better in CP Biology, AP Chemistry, and Physiology. Grade of C or better in Hon. Chemistry.
