520th Century SCIENCEThe 20th century was the domain of the physical sciences. Incredible discoveries were made, and then converted into applications for commerce and military.How many of these chaps are you familiar with?

12The Essence of AP Biology “"if you want easy college Bio credit do dual- enrollment, but if you want to really learn the process and practice of Biology, take AP Bio.”From AP Teacher Community on collegeboard.org
132013 AP Biology Results Pass Rate = 88% “5”s = 10% Students = 100 There will be zero 1s or 2s this year.
14Why this class is difficult… 1. Honors Biology ≠ AP Biology-- Biology knowledge base may be deficientChapters (over 1,000 pages)3. 3 credits vs. 8 credits for college4. Significant Mathematics focus (Chi-Square Test, etc.)5. Application & Evaluation Test Questions
15Why this class not difficult… 1. Clear expectationsVocabulary & Objectives2. Information is readily available3. Course Materials sourced from 5 Biology textbooks4. Course materials are easily accessible5. Few complicated concepts
16What is a College Level Course? Student-Driven Learning“students are expected to work independently outside the class”Role of teacher is to highlight some important pointsWill NOT cover every concept in classHomework will consist of videos or readings that need to be completed before class
19Class Discussions You WILL be called on to attempt an answer I want to hear what you have to sayPlease make all questions and comments relevant to the content discussionIf your question is off topic, write it down and ask it later
