How is it different from AP Biology?

Course is intended for middle to high school level students with an eagerness to learn about the fundamentals of biology that AP Biology will build upon. This course curriculum follows NGSS standards which is the standards recommended for all science courses across the USA. Exploring the topics at a rigorous level and focusing on projects, understanding science processes, inquiry into solutions to world problems and using engineer related topics as they apply to the biological sciences. Using some graphing and learning basics in data analysis will also be covered, so confidence in math would be beneficial.


Price: $675

Course Materials:

Textbook: Online Openstax Textbook (free)

Biology Kit ($60 paid to instructor)

Optional Digital Resources Fee: TBD (approx $50 per student)

Class Commitment: 8-10 hours per week
