The important thing is not to stop questioning.  Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

We cannot help but be in awe when we contemplate the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality.

It is enough if we try merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day.

Never lose a holy curiosity.

-Albert Einstein

 

AP Biology

CP Biology & Bio. I

Biology II

 

The goal of AP Biology is to create a culture of life-long learners, where students are informed citizens who have the tools and the critical thinking skills to analyze and respond to issues that arise in our ever-changing society. 

Students will be expected to develop essential knowledge of enduring understandings (core concepts) for what is referred to as the 4 “Big Ideas”. Students will also be expected to use the 7 science practices to make predictions, develop and refine testable explanations for natural phenomena. 

AP Biology emphasizes conceptual understandings including topics regularly taught in a college introductory course. Students explore biological concepts through an inquiry approach as lab investigations and special projects heavily supplement this course.  

AP Biology will prepare students for the rigor of college coursework and is appropriate for traditional academic students with an interest in biology as well as technical students who are pursuing careers in zoology, veterinary or medical fields.

Careers in Biology

 

Biology II  is a laboratory science course in which students engage in an in-depth study of the principles of biology.

Biology II  emphasizes comparative internal and external anatomical structure and functions of various plant and animal species, environmental interaction of organisms, processes of living things, mechanisms that maintain homeostasis, and the biodiversity and change in populations over time. 

Students explore biological concepts through an inquiry approach as lab investigations and special projects heavily supplement this course.  

Biology II  will prepare students for the rigor of college coursework and is appropriate for traditional academic students with an interest in biology as well as technical students who are pursuing careers in zoology, veterinary or medical fields.
