I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation! I want to thank those of you who have registered to classjump and ask you to spread the word to others you know will be taking the class to do so. The scheduled meeting on June 10th will not be necessary for I only have two updates, which I will post below. The first update is the two days a week, Mondays and Wednesday, when class will start at 8:15 instead of 8:45. This early start will allow us to set up labs and collect data over the required amount of time. It is important that you understand that these times are a requirement of the class, not optional. The other update is about the summer packet help sessions. If you need some sort of assistance with the work assigned, we will have two sessions on August 19- 20th at 3:00p.m.. Please email me if you plan to attend so I can make arrangements. You are always welcome to text or email me with questions you may have. I have a used book "The Botany of Desire" for sale for $10 from Celia Velazquez. If any one is interested in purchasing it, please stop by Monday through Wednesday, first come, first served.
Check out the materials list below and take advantage of tax free weekend in August to buy all of these to be prepared the very first day. I thank you again for registering and implore you to do your best inn AP Biology. Enjoy your summer!

Biology is a freshman year long course of study during which you will investigate organisms and their processes. The major themes to be studied throughout the year are: Cells, Bio-Molecules, Environmental Interactions, Genetics, Mechanisms of Evolution, Form and Function of Plants and Animals. During your study of Biology you will take part in a variety of assignments and laboratory experiments designed to enhance your understanding of the topics. The curriculum we will follow is prescribed by the state and national standards who also dictate our pacing and study sequence in preparation for our mandated semester exam. We hope to provide you with an extraordinary year full of discovery in the amazing field of Biology. I wish you much success!
