AP-Agenda and Homework Page 2020-21  - Dr. Gottfried [General links and information at the bottom of this page]

Study notes prepared by a student in AP BIO (not one of mine). A full year in less than 60 pages.
This was based on the pre-2019-20 class, but, should still be an excellent reference.

Shared Google Drive w/study guides by chapter (FredReviewXX) as well as other resources.


In Memorium - As you know,  my favorite musician (whose music you will hear alot in class) is a South African, Johnny Clegg. I should say, was a South African, since he died on Tuesday 7/16/2019. Go to YouTube and listen to some of his music. Search the Internet for his story. A truely great man. RIP Dr. G.

38% of my students passed the exam (better than last year, worse than the year before that).

65% passed nationally. 

I've linked the "advice to 2019-20" page here.

There will be similar information from the class of 19-20 to you  after they take the exam

The NEW College Board Curriculum Framework


Some of this is still linked to 2019-20 pages. But, things only change so much....

The first memo I gave you can also be found here: Letter001

Dr.  G.

We will probably be transitioning to the OpenStax AP Biology book as well as the OnLine 11th edition of Campbell's Biology (Pearson). I can't give you access until the district sends me the magic code.  The OpenStax book is great as something to get started with if you are ambitious. 

The online book-Biology for AP Courses

You can also download a pdf copy. 

There is also a student guide.  Download the guide

The NEW College Board Curriculum Framework
The most important document related to our course.  (You will need Adobe Reader to open this document).
You can find the schedule as well as lots of other stuff (some of it useful) in the Don't Panic Book.  (always a work in progress, but up-to-date as of June 2019).

Annotated Web Links       

Shared Google Drive folder with previous FRQs and various handouts etc. (Google "Drive") - includes single  file with multiple vocabulary lists, the highlighted Table of Contents to Campbell etc.

For the last few years (2016-18) I posted most of the notes and handouts to OneNote. I can't give you access to those files until you are actually in my class.
