    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This was an extremely interesting and engaging course that taught me a strong foundation in biology and helped me to enjoy science class a lot more! Mr. Piluk was a wealth of knowledge and his passion carried through his teaching making the class a lot of fun. It included lots of different activities from labs, to notes, to demonstrations, to videos. Each day was something new and exciting.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were the frog dissection lab and the creative "adopt a molecule project". The frog dissection was a hands on, very engaging lab. We worked in small groups so everyone was able to contribute and learn a lot. I learned all about the organs and organ systems of a frog and the proper procedures for dissections. The "adopt a molecule" project was a creative outlet where we created a powerpoint/baby book about a specific molecule, mine was glycogen. Our small group researched, assembled, and presented the project to the whole class. We became experts on our molecule and then took notes on the other molecules to become experts on those as well. These were my favorite assignments from the year.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to be very organized and willing to work. You will learn a lot but there are lots of labs, tests, and notes. Also, know how to create professional looking graphs on the computer.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a brilliant introduction to the true depths of biology. While it may be difficult and requires much work, it drives you to study hard and really understand the concepts. The professor is amazing and will always guide you through the intricacies of the class. The professor also manages to blend lecture with hands-on simulations and models creating an environment conducive to understanding.

    Course highlights:

    The best parts of this course would be the labs. Despite being difficult, the teacher guides you and simultaneously challenges you to explore and learn on your own. With labs about gel electrophoresis, restriction enzymes, and dissection, the difficult topics are easier to visualize.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are willing to work hard and study on your own, this course is a definitive recommendation. Biology is a very interesting and applicable subject, so the course really introduces you early on. The course involves a tremendous amount of homework, so be prepared. The tests are also difficult, so read over your class notes and review the class powerpoints. It pays off to be attentive!
