    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Morris is able to explain very intricate concepts in Biology to those who do not understand at all. The way he teaches is unlike any other teacher in the school; his lectures are extremely informative and exciting, his demonstrations and labs are always very broad which allow the students to take their research into their own hands, and he understands that AP Biology is a hard class. In response to this, he assigns many extra credit opportunities to increase grades and still make the class enjoyable. This class has been my favorite out of my four years in Los Osos and I hope to see this class advance in the future.

    Course highlights:

    One memorable highlight of this course was the testing of cellular respiration on mealworms. In the experiment, we tested the mealworms in different temperatures of water, which theoretically increase or decrease their rate of cellular respiration. The conclusion of this lab was that mealworms were able to increase their metabolic rate when placed into warm water, which made them move around uncontrollably. On the other hand, placing the mealworms into cold water decreased their metabolic rate, making the mealworms dormant and still. As their metabolic rates increase, so do their production of carbon dioxide.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would highly advise learning more than just the minimum of what is required. Learning the broad spectrum of Biology will allow you to gain a better concept of what happening in cells, systems, etc. Another piece of advice would be to actually read the physical copy of the textbook. I personally found that reading the physical copy of the book allows me to focus more on the details of the topic rather than the broad idea. The last piece of advice is to never procrastinate. Mr. Morris is fairly lenient when it comes to turning in assignments late, but repeating a bad habit is never a good idea.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It's cool if you like biology, if not, then no.

    Course highlights:

    The lab experiments were really interesting when they weren't confusing.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and read! The reading quizzes killed my grade.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course if one truly has an interest in this area of study and are self-motivated. If not, it may be more difficult because in order to keep up, one needs to be driven to succeed.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the different labs we did. I learned that this course takes dedication and how with hard work you can make a comeback.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course be dedicated and don't treat it as something you can leave on the side and focus on later. Do not procrastinate and study as much as you can, whenever you can.
