This class was tough.
Biology (Honors) is a required course in order to graduate. I would recommend Honors to anyone who is interested in science-based majors or fields later in the future. I would also recommend this to a student who is willing to take the time to study the notes because they can and will be complicated. This is an Honors course, so the student should be able to work at a faster pace than normal. I recommend studying the notes every night, looking up any material you don't understand on the internet, but lost importantly use the textbook (it is the most underused help you can get)!
I learned many different aspects about not only animals and how they live, but us as well. I learned about the human cells and their functions from the basics about the mitochondria is the power house of the cell to the in depth composition of our DNA! Not only did I learn material, but I learned how to use my time wisely. In this course you'll only have a few days notice for a quiz or test and a week or two for the research papers.

Advice for students:
To succeed every night you need to look over the notes. Make flash cards and use Quizlet. Look up material you don't understand on the internet and especially the textbook that is given! Write these new insights and notes in your notebook or on sticky notes in your notebook. I recommend creating a Google Document and combining the teachers notes and your notes you have looked up. This is very helpful to compacting them! Add pictures and diagrams to! Don't forget to print them out as well! It is fast paced so you cannot fall back or you'll have a hard time catching up.
