    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was so full of interesting information and answered a lot of questions that I had about the way that we as humans worked physically. I loved learning about the world that we live in, and especially about the smaller worlds inside of us that keep us alive and healthy. I had to practice studying because although this class was exciting and interesting, it was also a challenge. Also, Mrs. Affleck is a great teacher and I loved learning from her.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the evolution of organisms that we see in the world around us. Learning about genetics was also really neat, and learning about the way traits are passed on from parents to offspring is really interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to pay attention all the time in class because Mrs. Affleck teaches through lecture style classes. You will take about two full notebooks worth of notes, so you need to have a system of organizing your notes in a way that will allow you to study them efficiently.

    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!
