Advanced Placement Biology is a college-level
chemistry course designed to meet the requirement of the advanced placement
curriculum as defined by the College Board.
This course differs from CP Biology in the depth of study and amount of
quantitative analysis in the laboratory work. Topics covered include cell
structure & function, respiration, photosynthesis, cell division, heredity,
genetics, evolution, taxonomy, plants, human physiology, human reproduction,
animal behavior, and ecology. The course is fast paced and students need to be
prepared. Students should have strong
math skills and an interest in pursuing science as a major in college.
