AP Biology is a full year course which will be equivalent to a one semester course in introductory molecular biology.  Over the course the year students will be exposed to cellular structure and function, biochemistry, classical genetics, cellular energetics and the interactions of organism with biotic and abiotic factors in their environments.  Throughout the course students will be lead through each of the four big ideas in biology.  These big ideas will be substrate that each lesson will be built upon.  By the end of the course students will develop a greater understanding of the core scientific principles, theories, and processes governing living organisms.
