This is a second course in Biology that is considered to be college level in terms of academic rigor. This class offers an in-depth study of the AP Biology course topics and 8 inquiry labs to develop students’ research skills. The course is intended to prepare students to pass the AP exam in May (which may make students eligible for college credit). AP students are expected to sign up for and take the AP exam. Strong reading and reasoning skills are recommended. It is strongly recommended to take Physiology in the fall directly before AP Biology in the spring.
