AP Exam

This online course does not include the AP exam. If the student's local school does not coordinate AP exams, the student should call AP Central's customer service (1.888.255.5427, then 0) to obtain contact information for coordinators at nearby schools willing to coordinate exams for non-enrolled students. Students will then need to call those coordinators (by early March) to determine if their AP subject exam will be offered (not all coordinating schools offer all possible AP exams). Students should expect to pay all associated exam fees.

Description

View the course description.

Biology is presented as one form of scientific inquiry, the process of channeling human curiosity into purposeful exploration, discovery, and exploration of observable natural phenomena. Biology is the study of life, but it is most important as a shared method of asking questions all humans have about life and living things, and communicating responses to the questions in clear and understandable forms.
In this blended online course (employing both online and face-to-face learning), students will be taught and encouraged to continually pose questions about the subject matter. Through exploration and discovery of the phenomenon at the core of each lesson, students will be guided to answer their own questions and be able to discuss the phenomenon in ways that reflect sound scientific practices. Biology is presented as a living process, one that carries a body of current understandings and a method of building on those understandings to either deepen them or replace them with better explanations. In particular, we will explore these eight themes identified as the focus for AP-level Biology instruction:

  • Science as a Process
  • Evolution
  • Energy Transfer
  • Continuity and Change
  • Relationship of Structure to Function
  • Regulation
  • Interdependence in Nature
  • Science, Technology, and Society
