AP Biology

AP  Biology  Summer  Assignment  2015-­‐2016     AP  Biology  is  a  rigorous  course  and  due  to  the  large  amount  of  material  that  needs  to  be  covered  during  the  year,   a  summer  assignment  is  essential.       Students  who  have  performed  the  most  successfully  in  the  course  and  on  the  AP  exam  are  those  students  who   are  willing  to  work  steadily  throughout  the  school  year  and  who  are  willing  to  work  independently.     The  summer  assignment  will  be  due  the  first  day  of  classes,  September  14,  2015.  You  should  be  prepared  to   hand  in  the  assignment  at  the  beginning  of  class.    The  assignment  will  count  as  10%  of  the  first  marking  period   grade.    If  it  is  handed  in  late  or  incomplete,  points  will  be  deducted  from  your  grade.     To  complete  this  assignment  the  textbook  is  necessary.    The  textbook  is  Campbell  Biology,  9th  Edition.    Many   school  districts  might  provide  you  with  older  editions;  however,  this  edition  is  designed  to  meet  the   requirements  of  the  AP  Biology  curriculum  and  examination  that  changed  in  the  2012-­‐2013  school  year.     The  summer  assignment  must  be  handwritten  and  stapled  with  the  chapters  in  order.    You  are  to  read  and   outline  the  following  three  chapters.  I  have  included  a  sample  outline  format  for  your  assignment.         I.  Chapter  26,  The  Evolutionary  History  of  Biological  Diversity          A.  Concepts  26.1  and  26.2,  p.536-­‐542            B.  Concept  26.6,  p.  551-­‐553     II.  Chapter  40,  Animal  Form  and  Function              A.  Concepts  40.1-­‐40.4,  p.  852-­‐872     III.  Chapter  51,  Animal  Behavior   A.
