Advanced Placement Biology

Summer Assignment

Teacher: Mrs. Epie repie@beverlyschools.org


Your summer assignment will be in two parts. The first will be to complete the Ecology Unit by the July 28th deadline and the second will be to complete the Chemistry Review Unit by the August 24th deadline.

In order to complete this assignment, you need to log into the AP Biology Moodle page and into the Campbell AP Biology website.
  • Moodle: go to www.bhsonline.org, click on the Moodle link. If you have an account proceed to log in; if not, you need to follow the directions to create an account. Once in Moodle, click on Epie – AP Biology. The enrollment key is endosymbiosis

  • Campbell: go to www.pearsonschool.com/access
    • Our code begins with SS so click on that link
    • Click on covered titles
    • Click on science
    • Click on Campbell, Biology 5e/7e AP* Edition
    • Click on Student Registration
    • Read the usage policies click on I Accept
    • If you do not have a Pearson account, click no and type in the following access code in the boxes

SSNAST – SIRUP – OBEYS – SIDED – SAINT – ROUSE

o Click next and follow the directions to enter your data and complete the registration.
o After your registration is complete, you can go to http://www.campbellbiology.com/ to get to the Campbell pages; click on the 7th Edition textbook that has a fiddlehead on the cover

  • Be sure to write down your usernames and passwords for both accounts (they can be the same) because I won’t have any record of them.



On Moodle, there are folders for each chapter which contain the following information created by the authors of the textbook:
  • PowerPoint slides (that have been converted to Adobe Acrobat)
  • Lecture outlines
  • Chapter Objectives
  • For the Ecology Unit, there are also PowerPoint notes I created for those chapters
  • There are 20 pt quizzes for Ch 50-55 and 1-4 (These quizzes can only be taken once and have a 1 hour time limit from the moment you open them)

On the Campbell website, there are animations and practice quizzes for each chapter (Note: You may take these as many times as you want – I will never see your scores!); there is also an E-book located on the left side.


Ecology Unit: Ch 50-55
You will need to go to the Campbell Website, and using the E-book feature, read and learn the information in Ch 50-55. When you feel you understand the material for each chapter, go to the AP Biology Moodle page and take the online quiz for that chapter. All 6 Moodle quizzes for the Ecology Unit must be completed by noon on July 28th.


Chemistry Review Unit: Ch 1-4
As with the Ecology Unit, you need to go to the Campbell Website, and using the E-book feature, read and learn the information in Ch 1-4. When you feel you understand the material for each chapter, go to the AP Biology Moodle page and take the online quiz for that chapter. All 4 Moodle quizzes for the Chemistry Review Unit must be completed by noon on August 24th.

If you do not complete all parts of the summer assignment by the two deadlines, you will be dropped from the AP Biology class list.

When school starts in the Fall, we will begin with Chapter 5 on Biochemistry so you also need to read and prepare that chapter. Two-column notes (see the handout for the correct format) will be required for Chapter 5 and will be due on the day of that quiz in September (Note: you do not have to prepare two-column notes for Ch 50-55 and 1-4; your only grades for these chapters will be your Moodle quiz scores).
