Title:  DSC611&DSC612--AP BIOLOGY

Pre-Requisite:  DSC221&DSC222 - Biology, DSC343&DSC344 - Chemistry 2H

Course Description:    Advanced topics in biological sciences will be covered in this challenging course. Critical thinking, discussion of ideas, and writing are all expected. Advanced scientific methods and tools will be used for the experiments. Evolution, genetics, biotechnology, molecular biology, biochemistry, scientific investigation, and information representation in biological systems are studied. In this class, students will develop college-level laboratory skills. College credit may be awarded for qualifying AP Biology scores. AP course students are encouraged to take the AP examination, for which they will be prepared throughout the year.

Work Load:  A heavy emphasis on lab work and experimentation means students will have at least five hours of homework per week, including reading assignments, lab reports, and projects. In addition to assignments and exams, students will also be evaluated on their lab reports and projects.

Why would you be interested in the Class:  Students who are eager to explore advanced biological concepts should take this class. Students taking AP Biology will be well prepared for college-level Biology and other lab science courses.
