AP Biology is an introductory college level Biology course. Students learn about the core scientific principles, theories and processes governing living organisms, biological systems and natural phenomena.
Students develop their ability to generate explanations and predictions of natural phenomena, that they test and refine through laboratory investigations.
Emphasis is placed on the development of advanced reasoning and inquiry skills as students design experiments, collect and analyze data, and interpret that data to draw conclusions.
The AP Biology student is highly motivated and naturally curious about the natural world. Students must collaborate and work collectively to solve problems and apply conceptual knowledge to new challenges!
We encourage any grade 11 or 12 students that wish to pursue a degree in Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry, Physiotherapy or Microbiology to consider AP Biology.
Along with the AP Biology curriculum students will cover the same topics found in Anatomy & Physiology 12 and hence will receive credit for both upon successful completion.
In order to enroll in AP Biology, students must have completed:
Science 10 and either:
Life Sciences 11 or 11 Honors or
Anatomy & Physiology 12 prior to enrolling.
Chemistry 11 is highly recommended as a pre- or co-requisite.
