Samohi AP Summer Assignments
INCOMING AP BIOLOGY STUDENTS FOR 2018-2019
In an effort to best prepare incoming AP Biology students for the rigor and challenge of the course, each student will be required to complete a mandatory Summer Assignment. The summer assignments can be accessed on this website:
You must download and print the Unit 1 Files - Biochemistry Notes and Unit 1 Study Guide. Complete both of these handouts during the summer using the Campbell Biology textbook link provided on the handout. Both assignments, the self-completed Notes and Study Guide answers, are due on the first day of fall classes. Every AP Biology student will take a Quiz and a Unit Exam on the reading and homework after the first week of classes.
Use your Campbell Biology (9th edition) textbook to fill out the notes don’t just go for basic knowledge, try to get to the why’s and the how’s - chapters and sections of the text are in parentheses but you should read the entire chapter for complete understanding.
If you don’t have a textbook, you can access the online text,
(or google search Campbell 9th edition online textbook) Open Unit 1 and access the chapters to complete Notes)
We are looking forward to an enriching school year!
