Venture through life’s building blocks with our Advanced Placement Biology course. From the chemistry of life to the intricacies of gene expression and the fundamentals of natural selection, this course offers a varied exploration of biology. Engage with interactive simulations that showcase the biological world in vivid detail.

A Journey through Biology

Engage with the essence of life with our unit, where you'll explore everything from the chemistry of water and macromolecules to cell structure, function, and processes. Master the principles of cellular energetics, from enzyme kinetics to photosynthesis and cellular communications and cycles. Each simulation is crafted to enhance your understanding, allowing you to apply theoretical knowledge in virtual experiments that mirror real-world scenarios.

Decoding Genetics & Evolution

Unravel the complex language of genetics through units on heredity and gene expression and regulation. Our course examines the progress of our understanding of genes and inheritance from Mendel’s Laws to applications in Biotechnology. Drawing on knowledge of how genetic variation arises, this course concludes with the principles of evolution and selection and how these processes shape the diversity of life of Earth. 

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate the roles of the chemical building blocks of life in cellular structure, functions, and processes.
  • Apply the principles of cellular energetics to evaluate how cells obtain, transform, and utilize energy to maintain homeostasis and support life processes
  • Investigate the mechanisms of heredity and gene expression to predict inheritance patterns and explain how genetic variation arises and contributes to the diversity of life
