How does a "Multi-Day" course work?
Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Students enrich their knowledge of biology by exploring the topics in the areas of evolution, cellular processes, cellular energy and communication, genetics, information transfer, ecology, and interactions. This AP Biology course is organized based on AP Biology College Board guideline into units of study that provide suggested materials and sequence for the course content. These units consist of the content and skills colleges and universities typically require students to master to qualify...
This class is taught in English.
Students familiarize themselves with the terminology and concepts of Biology using a theme-oriented approach that emphasizes concepts and science as a process over knowledge of facts. They will enhance their problem-solving skills through readings, independent projects, and class discussions. The course will strengthen students and prepare them for further study in the Biological Sciences. Learners will also develop an understanding of the design of the biological experiments and how it would impact the validity and accuracy of their results. Many questions on the AP biology exam are written in an experimental context, so these sections will prove invaluable information for both concept comprehension and exam performance. This AP Biology course is organized into eight units of study as follows: Session One: Chemistry of life Learning Goals: The learners will be introduced to the structure of water and hydrogen bonding, elements of life, biological macromolecules; properties, structure, and function of biological macromolecules, and Nucleic acids. Session Two: Cell structure and function Learning Goals: Learners will study cell structures and their functions, cell size, plasma membranes, membrane permeability, membrane transport, facilitated diffusion, mechanisms of transport, tonicity and osmoregulation, cell compartmentalization, and its origins. Session Three: Cellular energetics Learning Goals: Learners would be able to identify enzyme structure and catalysis, environmental impacts on enzyme function, cellular energetics, cellular energy, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, and fitness. Session Four: Cell communication and cell cycle Learning Goals: Learners will study cell communication, signal transduction, changes in signal transduction pathways, feedback, cell cycle, regulation of cell cycle. Session Five: Heredity Learning Goals: Be able to understand meiosis and genetic diversity, mendelian genetics, non-mendelian genetics, environmental effects on phenotype, chromosomal inheritance. Session Six: Gene expression and regulation Learning Goals: Be able to identify DNA and RNA structure, replication, transcription and RNA processing, translation, regulation of gene expression and cell specialization, mutations, biotechnology. Session Seven: Natural selection Learning Goals: They will obtain knowledge regarding natural selection, artificial selection, population genetics, Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, evidence for evolution, common ancestry and continuing evolution, phylogeny, speciation, extinction, variations in populations, origins of life on earth. Session Eight: Ecology Learning Goals: Obtaining knowledge related to responses to the environment, energy flow through ecosystems, population ecology, community ecology, biodiversity, disruptions to ecosystems.
I have a biological and biomedical background, training, and work experience. In addition, I have had many years of experience teaching AP, SAT courses in the areas of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.
Multiple-choice, crossword puzzles, and free-response questions will be given to confirm the proper comprehension of the material. I will check their answers in each following class.
Learners will not need to use any applications, models, or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material in the class.
Student knowledge will be assessed through problem set assignments, tests, and exams. Exams are made that include multiple-choice and free-response questions.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
AP Biology from publishers such as McGraw-Hill, Barron's, Kaplan...etc. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material for each class.
