Acing AP Biology, Semester 1
Finals Prep Course
Students will review all the key topics covered in the first semester of AP Biology in depth and complete practice AP problem sets to prepare for finals. This course is designed to be fully aligned with College Board’s AP (Advanced Placement) curriculum standards.
The flow of the course follows the popular AP Biology textbook by Campbell & Reece, which is used by many high schools and universities such as UC Berkeley.
Note: We know students are also anticipating the semester 2 course. It will be released in January 2021. Join waitlist
The following are included as part of semester 1:
Biochemistry – Chemistry of Life and Macromolecules
Cells – Cell Structure, Membranes and Cell Transport, Cell Communication, Cell Cycle
UNIT 3, Part 1
Mendelian and Molecular Genetics – Punnett Squares, Inheritance Patterns, Chromosomes, DNA Structure and Synthesis, and Protein Synthesis
UNIT 3, Part 2
Viruses and Biotechnology – Virus Structure and Replication, Key Biotech Tools (PCR, vectors, etc.)
Hybrid structure, which includes both online lessons and weekly 45-minute Zoom office hour sessions with the instructor. This allows students to first absorb the concepts, then get detailed explanations for their specific questions and challenging topics
An award-winning platform that students love to use. Our course videos and modules work great on any device, whether it’s desktop or mobile
Instructor-led discussion forums, in-lecture review questions, student galleries, and more that foster active and social learning. This keeps students engaged and excited to learn with fellow classmates
Recorded video lessons allow students to learn at their own pace. They can sail through concepts they are comfortable with and slow down for tougher topics
Slide annotations and problem walkthroughs in class reinforce students’ understanding as they see processes and problem-solving in action
Comprehensive practice problems and study materials, including visual study guides and graded exams/quizzes. This saves them the hassle of Googling for materials when studying
Affordable: get a complete online course, access to live instructors, and practice problem sets at a fraction of the price of private tutoring and group classes
About the Instructor:
The instructor, Kailin, holds a B.S. from UC Berkeley in molecular biology. She has been teaching high school biology and chemistry for over 8 years now, presenting advanced science concepts in an engaging, organized way and helping students confidently ace the course and the AP exam.
What it takes to succeed in AP Biology, and how this course gets you there
Understanding the whole process, not just the individual vocabulary terms. Contrary to the way that many students are taught, biology and chemistry are not all about memorization. These subjects involve lots of processes and systems, and it is essential for students to understand how the different parts of a process work together to make up the whole. Our beautiful study guides and engaging lessons emphasize the importance of learning rather than memorizing.
Connecting the dots between concepts. This will allow students to more effectively apply their knowledge on their exams in school and on the real AP exam. Our courses use the overarching biology themes as the framework, drawing connections between different but related topics, and walking through key examples along the way.
Targeted practice problems. Practice problems are great, but not all of them will get you that A for the semester or a 5 on the AP. We want students to study smart, so our practice problems are all curated by instructors to target the toughest and most frequently tested concepts.
Assess and track progress. All quizzes and exams are graded promptly, so students know what they have mastered and what they need to focus on studying more for finals. Students can see all their scores and overall grade in the course dashboard. They can also use this to track their progress over time.
Is this course right for you? Our courses are most effective for students who:
Can stay engaged and focused throughout the video lessons
Are self-motivated to stay on track and complete lessons and assignments, since the course structure is self-paced
Are willing to participate in class discussion forums to ask questions and discuss with fellow classmates, and attend the live office hours in order to get the most out of the course
