    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.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Briggs has a professional yet fun personality that helps keep his students involved in learning. He also uses many drawings and diagrams to help visual learners.

    Course highlights:

    Learning a lot of about the course subject and retaining it well, Briggs helps his students not forget about the material but apply it to the next chapter.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the reading he assigns, ask questions, and review the tests. Often he will create questions just from the reading, he will incorporate topics he went over on tests in his lectures, and some test questions are from future tests that he is simply putting on the test to see what you know.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it relays information I have needed throughout my four years of high school. Taking it gave me the advantage of knowing information in detail compared to other students who did not choose to take AP Biology in their high school career.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about the cell, plant reproduction, human reproduction, cell synthesis, DNA synthesis, and many other topics in biology.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to be dedicated to the work given. This is a class that you will definitely use in the future no matter what career you might look into. It can help with knowledge on health and the everyday environment around you.
