AP® BIOLOGY COURSE
Microlearning branded with your institution’s logo & available entirely within your learning environment (LMS). PAY ONCE, THEN USE ON YOUR UNLIMITED STUDENTS FREE, YEAR AFTER YEAR.

The AP® Biology course contains 205 self-grading microlearning packages that you can upload to your Learning Management System (LMS).

The AP® Biology Course covers the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester Advanced Placement® biology course. The content provides comprehensive coverage of foundational research and core biology concepts through an evolutionary lens. The AP® Biology Course was designed to meet and exceed the requirements of the College Board’s AP® Biology framework while allowing significant flexibility for instructors. Each lesson in the course includes an introduction based on the AP® curriculum and includes rich features that engage students in scientific practice and AP® test preparation; it also highlights careers and research opportunities in biological sciences.

What is Advanced Placement (AP®)? Advanced Placement (AP) is a program in the United States and Canada created by the College Board, which offers college-level curricula and examinations to high school students.
