AP Biology course for 10-12th grade students
AP Biology is a college-level course that follows the CollegeBoard AP Biology curriculum. It focuses on gaining a deeper level of understanding for Biology, in preparation for college Biology classes and the AP Biology exam.
Contents of the AP Biology Course
Chemistry of Life
Learn and review the basic principles of chemistry highly used in biology including water and its properties, as well as review the structure and function of important macromolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.
Cell Structure and Function
Discuss vital cellular components such as plasma membranes and vacuoles as well as understand their properties and how they affect their function. Elaborate on potential scenarios that cells might find themselves in and how their organelles will react appropriately.
Explain catalysts’ structure and function and how they assist important cellular processes such as photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Review these processes and differentiate between aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Cell Communication and Cell Cycle
Map out the signal pathway in cells and between cells, as well as explain positive and negative feedback loops and how they help regulate the cell cycle.
Differentiate between meiosis and mitosis. Learn the basics of Mendelian and non-Mendelian genetics and how the environment influences heredity.
Gene Expression and Regulation
Understand DNA and RNA structure in order to follow the process of gene expression and regulation between transcription and translation. Discuss where and how mutations can occur and their effects on proteins further down the line.
Interpret the different forms of natural selection, including directional, disruptive, and stabilizing direction, and compare to artificial selection. Explain the ideas of common ancestry, speciation, and extinction, through the analysis of evolutionary evidence and phylogenetic trees.
Learn about population ecology and density-dependent and independent factors. Explain where and how human influence has changed ecosystems.
