AP Biology

 
 

Welcome to Mrs. Oliveira's AP Biology Page. Below you will find a variety of links to areas that may be of help to you. There's everything from general links to tutorials to sample AP test question links.
I've also included some links arranged by the units of your book. Use this page for help when I'm not available. If you need further assistance or if you have any questions about the material we're covering, click here Email Mrs. Oliveira .

Something else to keep in mind - come back often because this page will be continuously updated for you!

Here's some information about AP Biology from College Board Online:

According to College Board Online:
http://www.collegeboard.org/ap/students/biology/cours001.html
"The two main goals of AP Biology are to help students develop a conceptual framework for modern biology and to help students gain an appreciation of science as a process. The ongoing information explosion in biology makes these goals even more challenging. Primary emphasis in an Advanced Placement Biology course should be on developing an understanding of concepts rather than on memorizing terms and technical details. Essential to this conceptual understanding are the following: a grasp of science as a process rather than as an accumulation of facts; personal experience in scientific inquiry; recognition of unifying themes that integrate the major topics of biology; and application of biological knowledge and critical thinking to environmental and social concerns."
