HS Biology

There is so much information as we are entering HS.  Biology is one of those areas that requires a lot of research.  There is a wealth of information on the internet and tons and tons of free resources.  Everything listed is free unless otherwise noted. I felt the best way to sort through this is to start a list on the blog of good resources: CLEP STUDY GUIDES
  • http://www.ucopenaccess.org/courses/CPBioLabs/gen_course/index.html Actual labs that are through University of California.   They are diffusion, enzyme catalyst, mitosis, plant pigments, meiosis, molecular biology, population genetics & evolution, transpiration, heart rate & temperature, animal behavior, dissolved oxygen, aquatic primary activity.
  • http://dissect.froguts.com/ -ONLINE DISSECTION LABS to view.  (NOT FREE) $30 yearly subscription.  Have heard wonderful things about this.
  • http://quarksandquirks.wordpress.com/biology-hs-level/ - A homeschool mother created her own lesson plan.  This includes many interactive videos, project ideas, tests, etc.    Uses Campbell's Concepts & Connections, The Way Life Works and Biology Coloring Book.
  • http://www.ucopenaccess.org/course/view.php?id=75- Regular Biology- University of California has this actual online course, with videos and online text.   Everything you need to study biology.  (and it is free)
  • http://www.ucopenaccess.org/course/view.php?id=67 AP Biology- University of California offers the AP Biology course.  They use Campbell's Biology for the text (I believe this is referred to as the Big Daddy Biology Book).  
  • http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/biology/7-012-introduction-to-biology-fall-2004/ MIT offers many courses for free on what is called Open Course Ware.  This is a Intro Biology Course.  You would need a basic biology  understanding to complete this.  I have watched some the lectures and they are interesting.
  • http://www.hippocampus.org/  -This website has full class schedules for Biology.  They even link with various biology textbooks.  This is not only for Biology there are other classes as well.
  • http://www.ck12.org/flexbook/ This is an online textbook.  It has Ipad and Kindle ready books.  There are websites embedded into the text to various informative videos about what has been read.  You can request exams and instructor resources to go with the books.  They have other books besides Biology.
