    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would most definitely recommend this course. You go into so much depth about things that make our everyday world function. It gives you an incredible base knowledge of biology and even beyond that.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights of this course would have to be learning all of the processes like transcription, translation, photosynthesis, phylogeny, etc. My favorite would have to be everything we learned about diffusion or maybe free energy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take as many notes as you can. Always review each of the systems and their diagrams.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    As a student hoping to become a wildlife vet, I found this course to be an important step in my education. I not only learned the material, but how to apply what I learned in real life situations. The class was challenging but fascinating, and the teacher was wonderful! Taking the class is great preparation for college itself due to the rigorous coursework and classroom test taking.

    Course highlights:

    Before taking AP BIology, I knew only the basics of cell biology and very little about how the cells fit into biology as a whole. During the course we examined all kinds of cellular functions and how the communication between cells can activate important biological processes. I learned many interesting things about the immune system and how the body can identify foriegn bodies. However this class does not only examine the microscopic! Students will learn a great deal about ecology and evolution. I particularly enjoyed learning about DNA and genetics.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    For students considering this course, I would suggest that they spend extra time outside of class to study terms and notes. Try to do homework the day it is given so it doesn't pile up. Do your best to participate in classroom discussions! Ask the teacher questions as soon as you think of them so you don't get behind. Lots of the students in your class may have the exact same question!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because Affleck goes through every topic thoroughly. This class teaches every concept an AP/IB SL student would need to know. Affleck arranges all kinds of labs for us to do and she shows us some demonstrations as well during her lectures. She is available before and after school on most days and she tries to help as much as she can. She even suggested which AP prep book was best and I have been using that book ever since I bought it.

    Course highlights:

    We learned many things about cells. We learned about cellular respiration, photosynthesis, cell communication, DNA replication, and more. We learned many things about ecology as well. We learned the difference between the different survivorship curves, logistic & exponential growth, and r-selected species & k-selected species. There were other aspects of ecology that were taught to us. We were also taught the specifics of viruses, plants, animals, and Bacteria. We have covered so many concepts in AP Biology that I can't seem to be able to list all of them.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to do the objectives she passes out whenever she starts a new chapter of lectures. The practice quizzes she posts are helpful as well. Make sure to prep by yourself on your own time because this class is very fast-paced. Don't be afraid to ask her questions even if you feel like the questions are very petty.
