AdvBIO.1x: AP Biology – Part 1: The Cell (edX)

Created by: Delivered by:

The first course in a comprehensive series designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam, focusing on the cell, its structure, and functions.

Preparing for the AP Biology exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in biology as well as an understanding of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 1 of our XSeries: AP Biology and it is designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam.

In Part 1, you will be learning about things like the cell, its structure, its functions, and the chemistry that drives all of the processes cells carry out on a daily basis.

As you work through this course, you will find lecture videos taught by expert AP Biology teachers, practice multiple choice questions and free response questions that are similar to what you will encounter on the AP exam and tutorial videos that show you step-by-step how to solve problems. By the end of the course, you should be ready to take on the AP exam!

What you'll learn:

- Prepare for the AP Biology Exam

- Learn about Biochemistry, Cell Processes and Cell Communication

- See how biological systems interact with each other

- See how biological systems untilize free energy to maintain dynamic homeostasis

- Participate in inquiry-based lab investigations and discussions
