    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is for anybody that is huge into science. It is a very nice overview within the study of biology. The amazing range of information that was studied made the class more exciting. We covered many topics ranging from ecology to genetics. My teaches prepared me very well for the AP test which allowed me to not retake this class in college. Overall a great class if you are willing to work hard for your grades.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the year was the mass dissection. We did a total of 7 dissections all in the same day. I love to dissect, that is why I enjoyed it so much. We learned so much information it is very hard to sum it all up. We did a lot with cells- the basic unit of life, ecology, the human body and even some genetics. The labs make this class more hands on and more fun.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to read the text book. Notes and labs can only take you so far in this class. You will have to do extra work to get an A. But if it is a subject that you really enjoy then it should be worth it!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone that truly loves the study of biology. It was a very interesting course and taught me a lot about how the body functions and responds to outside stimuli. Anyone interested in sciences should take this course for a more detailed perspective.

    Course highlights:

    The best part of this course was being able to do different types of labs incorporating the things we learn. The best lab we did was a PCR lab in which we isolated DNA and were able to read the sequence. I learned a lot in that course. Mainly about cellular functions and how they compliment one another to keep the body in a balanced state. But there was a lot about plants as well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To students considering this course my number one bit of advise is to study. I know people say that for every class you take but this class was truly one of those classes in which some material required several readings to understand. each function was related to a new function and hand in hand they had a specific goal. To have to memorize everything would have been quite difficult. So by reading and studying things more than once you can learn the material and it will all connect so that you know okay this now results in this and that comes from this so this process must be this.
