Our basic biology course is a perfect introduction to the miraculous science of life. But beyond biology, this class helps your student to learn how to learn and remember all those facts that sometimes appear to be overwhelming.
Whether your student loves, hates, or simply tolerates biology, this class will open up a fun new way to approach the subject. Students benefit from Dr. Dan’s many years of veterinary practice and teaching experience. Your student will be amazed at the unexpected and even silly things that Dr. Dan comes up with to make biology fun and rewarding.
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.
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: Physical and General Science 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.
