Goal: improve GPA and AP score, reach USABO Open exam

Course description:

The class has two primary goals:

First, to prepare students for the AP Biology exam by

(1) covering every necessary chapter in the Campbell Biology 9th edition text,

(2) completing worksheets, practice problems and exams, and

(3) reviewing historically paradigm shifting experiments.

Second, to support students in their preparation for the USABO competition by

(1) covering every single chapter in Campbell Biology 9th edition text,

(2) completing a variety of practice problems, and

(3) reading and discussing a variety of supplementary materials.

As the class is three hours long, the first two hours will cover primary AP Biology materials.  The last hour will cover supplementary material intended to aid students who are preparing for the USABO.

This class is ideal for students who are studying independently for the AP Bio exam or for any student interested in biology.
