AP® Biology - Part 4: Ecology (edX)

Created by:Delivered by:
Taught by:

The fourth course in a comprehensive series designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam, focusing on ecology.

Preparing for the AP Biology exam requires a deep understanding of many different topics in biology as well as an understanding of the format of the AP exam and the types of questions it asks. This course is Part 4 of our AP Biology series designed to prepare you for the AP Biology exam.

In Part 4, you will learn about ecology, the interactions between organisms, how they depend on each other, how they interact with their environment and how they compete with each other.

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 will be prepared to take on the AP exam!

This course is authorized as an Advanced Placement® (AP®) course by the AP Course Audit. The AP Course Audit was created by the College Board to give schools and students the confidence that all AP courses meet or exceed the same clearly articulated curricular expectations of colleges and universities.
