AP Biology - Summer Learning of Prerequisite ContentWelcome to AP Biology!
You are in for a fun and challenging year! AP Biology is truly a college level course that follows the curriculum of an introductory biology course taken by biology/pre-med or science majors. You will be expected to keep up with the pace of the course, which will require diligent study habits and a strong desire to learn.
The AP Biology curriculum is designed for students who have completed and excelled in 1 year of high school biology and 1 year of high school chemistry. As we have done over the past few years, we have opened this course to underclassmen, including freshmen, who have demonstrated the ability to master difficult concepts at a fast rate.
Due to the fact that many of you are over 1 year removed from biology and chemistry or haven’t taken them yet, I am asking you to review the prerequisite concepts of biology and chemistry. This material will not be assessed, but you will find that we will not spend significant time in class reviewing these concepts and new learning in AP Biology builds off of these concepts.Pre-requisite Course Notes:Mr. Bradley's YouTube Channel (content added often)Outside online resources:OpenStax HS Biology Textbook (for Cells, Cell Reproduction and Heredity)OpenStax AP Biology Textbook (use Chapter 1.1, 1.2, and 2.1)Mr. Bradley
