    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, as it allows one to develop discipline in learning, and a high understanding of life.

    Course highlights:

    This course taught me about things incorporated within science, life and the foundation that they are built upon. However, I did not solely learn the concepts of biology. I developed educational discipline from this course. It pushed me to devote myself to developing a high understanding by working efficiently. We were able to experience the material hands on by taking field trips to conferences, and to the zoo.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice that I can offer is to read the content of the course material. As I had not yet experienced high school when taking this course, I expected the workload and ease to be similar to that of middle school. The class was slightly more difficult for me than the other students, as I had not taken eighth grade science. I traveled to the local high school in the morning to take this course when I was in eighth grade. What I was not aware of well into the semester was that the important content that I needed to know was not discussed in class. The information discussed in the class lesson everyday was only an overview, causing the students to require the book for in-depth instruction. I struggled for much of the semester until I began using the book as a resource.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to go into the medical field. Mr. Tapia is an excellent teacher who will teach you all the important basics and complex detailed things you need to know for a biology major in college.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about cells, cancer, DNA, diseases, human body

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always take good notes especially when the teacher emphasizes certain points and try to study your notes every other day to get the most out of them and retain knowledge really well which will help you ace every exam.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you want to go into the science industry, Biology Honors is one of the courses that cover it greatly. You go in a fast pace, learning all you can to advance to AP Biology and the Biology major.

    Course highlights:

    So far, I learned about sustainability, Ecology A and and B. Sustainability is mainly about how you can tell if a specific species is sustainable or not. You can tell if a specific species is sustainable by noting the food sources, air quality, population size etc. Ecology A is about biodiversity and how it can be affected. Negative effects is when invasive species come in an area and humans overfishing, to name a few. Ecology B is about the carbon cycle and the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration. The carbon cycle goes through the atmosphere, to plants, to animals, to ocean waters, to ocean biomass, just to name one path of carbon.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study, study, study! And not the day before the test. Maybe more like a week in advance, depending on how difficult the chapter is. Plus, do all the homework and labs. They may be 10℅s, but they help you prepare for the tests.
