Useful Websites
1. The process of evolution drives the diversity and unity of life.

2. Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce, and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.

3. Living systems store, retrieve, transmit, and respond to information essential to life processes.

4. Biological systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties.

The revised AP® Biology course addresses this challenge by shifting from a traditional “content coverage” model of instruction to one that focuses on enduring,
conceptual understandings
and the content that supports them.

This approach will enable students to
spend less time on factual recall and more time on inquiry-based learning
of essential concepts, and will
help them develop the reasoning skills
necessary to engage in the science practices used throughout their study of AP Biology.

Why should students take an AP Class?

* Demonstrates strong character, maturity, and motivation
* It helps students develop important skills that will better prepare them for college.
* AP Students stand out during the College Admissions process
* Depending on their AP Exam score, students may earn college credits and/or may skip introductory college classes.
