Transcript of Introduction to AP Biology

What is AP Biology? Multiple Choice Free Response The AP Exam Scores 1 through 5 The College Board Course Content May 9th, 8:00 am .25 pt penalty for guessing 60% of Final Grade 80 minutes for 100 questions 10 minute reading time 90 minute writing 4 essay questions Content is based on percentages in course description 3 Hours Long 40% of Final Grade How much college credit depends on the College/University "To provide the maximum information about differences in students’ achievements in biology, the exams are intended to have average scores of about 50 percent of the maximum possible score for the multiple-choice section and for the free-response section. Thus, students should be aware that they may find these exams more difficult than most classroom exams." How do I survive AP Biology? AP GRADE QUALIFICATION
5 Extremely well qualified
4 Well qualified
3 Qualified
2 Possibly qualified
1 No recommendation Provides students with the opportunity to take college-level course work and exams while still in high school. AP Biology should include the topics regularly covered in a college biology course for majors. The textbooks used for AP Biology should be those used by college biology majors and the labs done by AP students must be the equivalent of those done by college students. This course is designed to be the equivalent of a college introductory biology course usually taken by biology majors during their first year. Molecules and Cells, 25% Heredity and Evolution, 25% Organisms and Populations, 50% 12 Recommended Labs 1. Diffusion and Osmosis
2. Enzyme Catalysis
3. Mitosis and Meiosis
4. Plant Pigments and Photosynthesis
5. Cell Respiration
6. Molecular Biology
7. Genetics of Organisms
8. Population Genetics and Evolution
9. Transpiration
10. Physiology of the Circulatory System
11. Animal Behavior
12. Dissolved Oxygen and Aquatic Primary Productivity Same people that produce the SAT High school, college, and university faculty Course Syllabus Online Resources Usually one essay on Molecules and Cells,
one on Heredity and Evolution,
one on Organisms and Populations,
and one based on one of the 12 Labs. http://mrsharrisapbiology.wikispaces.com/
