    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I overall enjoyed this course because I found it very interesting. This class was challenging, but I learned a lot in the long run.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of the course was learning about cells. We went more in depth about them than in previous years, and I found it really interesting.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study!! This class can be challenging, but if you pace yourself and study then it shouldn't be hard. Know your vocabulary and key terms.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because there was so much information taught while still remaining a manageable class. The labs were interesting, informational, and provided more understanding about the material being taught. It is taught in a continuous manner in that the students learn how one thing affects another, creating something that affects something else. The teaching style is very effective, and easily followed.

    Course highlights:

    I learned more about cells and the way they function than I ever thought possible. Every year it seemed I learned the same things about cells, but in this class I actually learned what causes everything inside cells to function the way they do as well as how everything impacts something else. I learned a lot about the macromolecules, and more about the process of plants making their own food. I learned many new things about the properties of water, and about different forms of natural selection molding the environment around us.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is very important to remain focused during this class. Everything mentioned has an equal likelihood of appearing on a test, and all notes are presented by spoken word. It is advisable to do research on the material outside of the notes in class before the test day. This can come in the form of videos or reading any information about the topics being tested. The tests are based on application of the material, so memorizing definitions will not be beneficial.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I really enjoyed this class mainly because of my interest in science and my amazing teacher. Dr. Duplessis knew practically everything about the cell, human body, or anything you asked a question he had an answer. Overall, the whole class was very informative and I was interested in the topics we were learning about, which definitely made this a better experience for me. Also this was the first science class I was really challenged in. I took this class at the honors level my freshman year of high school. In middle school science was just a general description of some topics, but never went in depth into the material. In biology we looked at things with more detail and I was really able to understand what all went into each concept we were discussing.

    Course highlights:

    I gained so much from this course and will continue on the knowledge I obtained and use it for other subjects in my schooling. We went more in depth in photosynthesis and cellular respiration then we did in middle school. Learning about the different parts of the cell was also a key part of this course we learned each part and their functions. Mitosis and cytokinesis the steps to doing those processes. The nucleus was a major part of our discussions. And also I was introduced to amino acids and their roles.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Like i said this class was more on the challenging side for me, partly because of the change of a middle school class to a high school class but overall i ended up with a good grade and gained a lot of knowledge. In order to succeed I would read the part we were talking about in class in the textbook after class that day in order to retain that information better. I would also read the whole chapter in the book before a test, because most of his test questions came from the book. In class i would highlight my notes and color coordinate different things to help organize them in my head better. This seemed to help me a lot by taking a large amount of information and making it so my eyes could follow it better. My teacher would talk a lot in class as well as go over a power point, so i recommend taking brief notes on the power point and paying attention to what he is saying in class, because those could be possible test questions as well!
