Advanced USABO

This class is for highly motivated students who who have already ready most of Campbell 's Biology.  If you aren't sure whether you're ready for this class, please talk with Mrs. Webster, the instructor.

We will use this opportunity to expand our ability to interpret scientific data and labs, as well as to learn anatomy, physiology, and botany.  I will also provide opportunities and support to students who'd like to continue practicing genetics and cell + molecular biology independently.

Required readings will be from:

Tortora and Derrickson’s 13th edition of Principles of Anatomy and Physiology

Mauseth’s 5th edition of Botany: An Introduction to Plant Biology

I also strongly recommend students purchase Albert's 6th edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell

Some of our past students have won science fair competitions, excelled at challenging summer internships, achieved Finalist status in the USABO competition, and more.  All of our past students enjoyed learned a lot of interesting and in-depth biology.
