AP Biology Web Page - This web page created by Chris Halloran from North Warren High School comes with a complete online syllabus. It has excellent web links and practice problems that will help both the AP and Honors biology student.
Biology Study Problems: This site has an excellent assortment of multiple choice questions. The questions are linked to a college level text (different from ours), so are most useful for AP students, but can be used by all, since the answers can be accessed from the site.
Characteristics of Life Powerpoint
Cell Biology Links:
Introductory Biology online:These web pages are the work of Dr. June Steinberg. They are intended for college students, but will be useful for both honors and AP biology students. Most of the topics covered are under the category of cell biology
Biology Animations - Interactive animations, featuring useful tutorials on organic molecules, atomic structures, and properties of water
Genetic Scinece Learning Center - This site has information regarding gene therapy, stem cell research, cloning and much more, lots of interactive animations.
DNA interactive - This website has historic videos, interactive animations and is an excellent review of DNA structure, functions, and current technological applications.
Drag and Drop Genetics This site will give you practice with monohybrid, blood type, sex linked and pedigree genetics problems. Useful for students struggling with genetics or for those of you who simply want more problems.
More Genetics Problems: These problems are from a university genetics class, so they will be more challenging.
More Drag and Drop Genetics: Another drag and drop site with more challenging problems. This one includes:testcross, dihybrid, trihybrid, sex-linked, sex-influenced, epistasis
30 Gneetics Problems: Great variety of 30 genetic practice problems from basic to advanced. Be aware that there are no answers given here.
PCR Animation - Great animation that allows you to practice the PCR procedure and see the process in detail.
Tree of Life: A collaborative Internet project containing information about phylogeny and biodiversity
Laboratory Review: This site contains microscopic images that help you review concepts covered in some labs. The site covers many topics such as mitosis, meiosis, protists, plants, animals, evolution, genetics, etc. This site is a useful interactive way to see if you can identify microscopic images and the concepts connected with these images.
Botany Lab Help: An excellent site that links to images of plants and protists. Useful for reviewing before lab practicals.
Botany Review: This site has excellent review pictures of mosses, ferns, conifers, and angiosperms. Useful for understanding and reviewing general structures, sporpphytes, gametophytes of each plant group.
Angiosperm Structure Function Review: This link provides an excellent review of plant anatomy. It also has interactive practice questions that are useful for the plant lab practical.
Virtual Pig Dissection: An excellent site with pictures and tutorials that will help you with your fetal pig dissection and the fetal pig practical.
Virtual Embryo: An excellent site to review development iin frogs, chicks, humans, starfish, and other organisms. This site is a grear supplemental tool for our development unit. There are movies and labeled diagrams are excellent. To view the movies better use Netscape navigator.
Virtual Coweye Dissection: This site features and excellent dissection of a cow eye. The pictures are small but the text is very useful.
Chickscope: An excellent review of chick development, complete with images and movies.
