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.
