Lab Component

The laboratory experience is extremely important in the AP Biology course and is used to emphasize how biology is a scientific process, which involves development and testing of a hypothesis, collection and presentation of data, analysis, with a clear discussion of your results.  To ensure the lab component of the course is met, on average, one day a week will be devoted to laboratory work.  Students are required to come in to the laboratory prepared and ready to complete the day’s procedure.  Lab reports are to be completed at home and turned in by the posted due date. 

The following AP Biology Investigative Labs will be conducted:
