Welcome to Miss Cote's

Fabulous Website!


 

AP Biology

Welcome to a new school year, and congrats for choosing AP Bio! I am not going to lie - this is a tough class. We move very fast through the material, and you are expected to cover a lot of material outside of class. However, unlike an actual college class, I am around way more than an actual professor, so please take advantage of that!

This is more than a Biology class - we will tackle a college-level textbook, improve your study habits, help you with time management, teach you to think critically, and much more! So buckle up and get ready for an amazing year!

Biology of Human Reproduction
 

Welcome to a new school year, and thank you for choosing Human Reproduction! I hope you will enjoy learning all about our amazing Reproductive System this semester. The basic plan is to cover six units: (1) Reproductive Hormones, (2) Anatomy and Physiology, (3) Fertilization, Development and Birth, (4) Birth Control, (5) Ethics in Fertility, and (6) Sexually Transmitted Diseases, but we will also have many discussions about current events and research relating to these topics. So let's make this a great semester together!
