AP Biology A/B
The Advanced Placement (AP) Biology course, designed to prepare you to take the College Board Advanced Placement Biology exam, will acquaint you with the main themes in biology. This online biology course covers the topics of molecules and cells, heredity and evolution, organisms and populations.
In the AP Biology course, the first semester, will focus on chemistry of life, cells, cellular energetics, heredity, molecular genetics, and evolutionary biology. In the second semester, AP Biology B, will focus on the diversity of organisms, the structure and function of plants and animals, and ecology. The twelve required AP Biology labs will be performed via online lab simulations, six each semester.
Please note: There may be a separate laboratory component that must be taken after this biology course to meet some college entrance requirements.
All courses are written to California Department of Education
standards and to national standards, as applicable.
