This upper level class is suitable for students who love biology and wish to progress beyond the basics. As with all of our classes the emphasis is on fun and hands-on learning.
Although we do use a text-book, we are not limited by one. Dr. Dan draws on many different sources such as additional texts and articles, diagrams, illustrations, stories, media reports, current events, basically anything that can add excitement to the material. It’s a tremendous learning experience that can’t be duplicated in just working through a text book alone.
Advanced Biology is an AP course (advanced placement) and can lay the groundwork for students who want to use the College Level Examination Program to “CLEP” out of college courses and get a jump on their higher level educational career.
Prerequisites: Biology and Chemistry with Dr. Dan or, if you feel that your student has the equivalent from another program submit your application for review by Dr. Dan. If the student is at a satisfactory level of learning they can still be accepted into the class.
