    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Yes! AP Bio is a fun, easy, and interesting class. With the adequate amount of studying, participating and engaging in class discussions becomes very entertaining and you will learn so much about yourself and all life around you!

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of the course were probably the labs we did. They were simple, but we would always learn from them and enjoy them as a class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Never cram studying. There is a lot of background material to brush up before coming to class for a class discussion, so imagine all the material you would need to cram if you were to study at the last minute. The class is fun and in a comfortable environment, but do not take the class too lightly!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Mr. Briggs makes learning Biology enjoyable. Before his class, biology was my most dreaded subject however, after taking his class, I not only feel capable in the subject, but I also can say that it was not painfully boring.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights include the fruit fly lab, where we studied recombinant genes, several review games, which motivate you to continuously study throughout the year, and Funny Fridays, where Briggs shares a story or joke in order to end the week with a good laugh.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always check portal for assignments and never leave anything until the last minute.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a deeper inspection into the biology of ourselves and the world. Biology's complexity makes you question the origin of life and allows you to think critically to solve problems and inspires you to seek deeper.

    Course highlights:

    One of my favorite moments would be when we would have a AP styled Free response question. These sort of questions engages your brain into a mode where you critically analyze the possible causation for the phenomena that was presented. This skill further extends into all fields of study where you have to take what you know and see how that fits with what is happening to try to solve the mystery. Specifically talking about the material, my favorite topic was the cell's biology. Understanding the biology of the cell and the mechanism that they undergo to work together in an organism allows you to look inside and question what is happening with your own body.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    When people talk about biology, people think memorization. WRONG! The right steps for success in this course is to learn the mechanism and causes and effects for whatever subtopic you are looking at. Memorizing the functions of all the organelles in a cell is much more difficult than simply taking yourself through the average cycles of a cell. Piecing information together (e.g. knowing how the packing of materials in the endoplasmic reticulum is carried trough the cell to then be implanted on the cell wall) makes for much better remembering of the information than trying to isolate one piece of information.
