    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    If you love biology and wish to pursue a major or career on this subject then I would definitely recommend this course. It is fun, interactive and overall an enriching experience! Mr. McGonegal is brilliant and is always encouraging students to get involved with the coursework. The Pearson textbook that is paired with this course in also very interesting and interactive. It offers an e-text digital version that includes live animations of many different processes in Biology.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about the human heart, the respiratory system, and the molecular structure of cells. Towards the end of the course we learned a bit about the functions and structures of a plant as well as the various kinds of plants. Perhaps my favorite section was the human and animal physiology section

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    whatever you do, do not procrastinate. Make sure you read and re-read the subject notes and section in the textbook! The tests cover a wide range of course material and it is important to start studying several days before an upcoming test. Studying the night before will only make taking the test the next day more miserable. IF you begin preparing ahead of time, you will be less nervous and more inclined to score higher!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved this course! It was fascinating, and even though it was a lot of work, it was interesting enough to justify it.

    Course highlights:

    I loved the units on genetics because of the really cool labs they involved, especially the Drosophilia labs.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study hard and read the book closely. You will need the reading and his lecture notes in conjunction to pass the tests. Rewrite the notes to study, that helped me a lot.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is an amazing course. Mr. McGonegal is an outstanding teacher---he is even one of the authors of the IB biology textbook! I learn so much in this class.

    Course highlights:

    I better understand the human body and so many other biological concepts.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take good notes in class. Do the reading. Study well.
