    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's an interesting coarse that goes well into depth of all one needs to know about biology.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned how to properly classify living organisms, and study the effect they have on the environment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Always make acronyms for large chucks of information.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    We used the Apologia Biology, and it is memorization-heavy. My teacher made it fun, but it was still pretty hard. We were required to do a year-long project that wasn't in the book. We had to identify 50 species of birds that we saw with our own eyes (wild birds only). While I thought it was lots of fun ( I identified 54), many of my classmates struggled with it.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights included the bird watching project and the labs. I learned to be more observant of my surroundings while trying to find all the birds. I also learned lots of information that will prepare me for college biology. I am now more familiar with mitosis and meiosis, kingdoms, phyla, classes, orders, families, genre, and species.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the book before the lectures, listen in class for information you missed or didn't understand, and be sure to write down anything that isn't in the book. Start the bird project early.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Biology is essential for everyone, and is a great learning experience. It allows you to understand more about yourself, the world around you, and how to relate to it. Great course.

    Course highlights:

    I loved human biology. The human body is incredibly complex and fascinating! I learned about a wide variety of subjects including genetics, the brain, malfunctions of the body, and how the body protects and regenerates itself.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study and understand the material, otherwise you will have a hard time in tests and going forward, as it builds on itself. If you don't understand something, ask for help! You will be glad you did.
