We are enthusiastic about the College Board's recent revision of the AP® Biology course in which greater emphasis is being placed on science inquiry, conceptual learning, and critical thinking. In addition, we look forward to working with AP Biology teachers across the nation to support learners, particularly in those labs that use Fast Plants® as a model organism.
The Fast Plants digital library now features an AP® Biology Resource classification in the secondary grade level resources. Included in that classification are a number of teacher and student-focused resources designed specifically to align with those AP materials that feature Fast Plants, and we continue developing more as needs arise.
