Prerequisite: C or better in Biology and C or better in Chemistry, or teacher approval This is a college level biology course. It covers a full range of concepts from microbiology to macro-biology. First semester will focus on microbiology, such as biochemistry, cell biology, biochemical pathways, genetics, and heredity. Second semester will emphasize macro-biology, such as evolution, taxonomy and classification of species, and the structure and physiology of plants and animals. A fundamental understanding of chemistry concepts is important to a student's success in this class. In order to receive college credit, an AP College Board exam must be taken. The exam is given in May and a student's score on the exam determines the amount of college credit a school will grant the student.
