In AP Biology, homeschoolers will learn the information they need to succeed on AP Science exams.  Students who wish to pursue biological science in college are encouraged to enroll in this AP course.  Homeschool students will review basic chemistry and focus on cell structure and function in the beginning of the year.  They will cover photosynthesis, DNA and RNA, genetics,  and evolutionary theory.  Homeschoolers will finish off the year with an in-depth study of the various functional systems found in the anatomy of animals such as circulatory, skeletal, digestive, and nervous systems.
