AP Biology (Period 1A)

Course Description

Period 1 Google Classroom Code -  oi6o30c
Period 6 Google Classroom Code - 6exngb
 
This is a college course. Students are expected to approach this class with a strong academic mindset. I will utilize whatever resources I believe are most helpful in increasing understanding. This includes those items shared to me by my friends in the teaching community. 
 
Here is the link to Paul Anderson's video podcasts. These are an excellent resource. Paul is considered the worldwide guru of AP science.
 
Two important aspects of Ap Bio are Big Ideas and Science Practices. Here are some videos to help you with these ideas as we cover them in the course. Please refer back to these videos all year long. These are concepts that will connect all of the unit we study this year.
