AP Biology covers fundamental elements of the biological sciences and also seeks to develop an enduring conceptual understanding of the major themes of biology: evolution, energy transformations, and molecular biology, DNA and information storage and retrieval, and the interaction of biological systems. Students learn about the integrity of living systems and the application of chemical and physical principles of life. Students also explore the historical perspective of recent major developments in biology. Laboratory activities hone analytical skills and foster an appreciation of scientific experimentation.
