    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are interested in biology, science, and the like, definitely take it, because a lot of things in biology can be expanded into other sciences, such as chemistry, biotechnology, etc. It is a very good course to take if you want to expand upon your basic knowledge of science (such as everyone knows what DNA is, or that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell)--but AP biology takes it one (or maybe more) level (s) deeper.

    Course highlights:

    Doing the labs and hands-on experiments were always fun, especially with the lab equipments that made you feel like a real scientist in a lab, and not just dorky science geeks huddled around a table. My favorite thing, though, was learning things that actually applied to life (you might be thinking, well biology, the study of LIFE hur dur), but some units were very interesting because you may have heard about something vaguely and you thought it was a myth but there's actually scientific evidence and proof as to why that's true, and you learn about that in AP biology.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely read the textbook, and just skimming it is not enough. Always always always look at the pictures, graphs, and anything in the margin (margin as in anything not included in the text) because it's really easy to miss those kinds of things, since they're shoved to the side and you're too dazed to look anywhere else except for the dizzyingly humongous chunk of text that you're reading. Those pictures and captions underneath are usually crucial, and the visuals are usually very helpful as well. Another important thing is to never save an entire chapter or even half a chapter to read the night before the test, because of the aforementioned large amounts of text, and also just because cramming is never good. Online resources are your friend, but don't think you can get away with just using those and not reading, because online resources are much more condensed and put into simpler words, while the textbook doesn't hold back on their vocabulary (which you need to know).

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The depth of knowledge I have grasped from taking this course has encouraged me to pursue a career in the realms of biology. Every unit is so interesting in being able to understand how everything from the human body to plant life works and functions. Mr. Thiel is the most interactive and engaging teacher I have ever had. He makes me want to learn and come to class! Even though the material is challenging, I have become a substantially better student from this class. Each lab is so detailed and specific that I feel I grasp the material better and am able to apply it to real life situations.

    Course highlights:

    By being challenged and strained by this course, I have learned how to be a better test taker, a better note taker, a better classmate, and a better student overall. The development and human body units deeply intrigued me and led me to want to become a sports physical therapist. This class allowed me to realize my dream in life, and it has taught me incredible was to care for my body and treat it like a sanctuary.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Pay attention during lectures!! The information the teacher says will greatly help when test time comes around. Also, use office hours wisely! When there is even the slightest thing you do not understand in the material, be sure to go in after school and have the teacher explain it to you! This is a life saver for tests and quizzes. Also, pictures in the book are always going to help understand complicated topics!
