 I was a "newbie" AP Bio teacher in 2007-2008. These are links that I have found useful starting out my first year and have added to since then. Hopefully they will help someone else starting out.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:
From:
Trevor Packer Twitter feed
Senior Vice President of Advanced Placement & Instruction at College Board.

2020 AP Bio Exam:
The health and safety of educators and students are the AP Program’s highest priorities. We considered canceling AP testing this year, but 91% of AP students surveyed asked we not. So we’ll invest heavily to provide optional online daily AP review classes and at-home AP testing.

To support those affected by school closures due to COVID-19, students and schools will have access to free, live, daily, mobile-friendly AP review lessons, taught by superb AP teachers from across the country, beginning March 25.

The at-home AP Exams this year will not include any multiple-choice questions, only free-response questions (45 minuted) adapted for secure testing at home. They will measure skills that can't be learned from Google or chats with friends. By April 3, we will post the specifics for each exam.

Two testing dates: one in May; one later

Because of the challenges created by COVID-19, we’re developing a new at-home AP Exam option. Students will be able to test on a computer, tablet, or smartphone. To be fair to all students, the exams will only cover topics typically covered by early March. (Units 1-6)

Specific AP Exam dates and free-response question types will all be posted by April 3. We’'ll also unlock that day any relevant free-response questions in AP Classroom for digital use so students can access all practice questions of the type that will appear on the exam.

The at-home exams are designed and administered in ways that prevent cheating; we use a range of tools and techniques, including plagiarism detection software, to protect exam integrity. Scoring at-home AP Exam work is not new; for years, we’ve done this for CSP and Capstone.

Like a college exam, these exams will be open book/"open note".  They won't test simple factual recall; instead they'll be foused on skills and thematic understandings.

Students can get refunds from their schools if they choose not to test. No $40 cancellation fee of course.

COLLEGE BOARD AP Live Online Classes and Reviews

Why are these reviews about material (Evolution) that isn't supposed to be on the exam ?
FROM COLLEGE BOARD:While the online courses will include daily review in regards to a practice item students will complete each day, we are also giving our teachers the opportunities to hone the skills necessary for the content students will need for sequent course success. As noted on the website, while the exam is focusing on the first 75% of the course content, the skills are carried throughout and we will include supplemental lessons on the latter 25% to support that. We recognize the 2020 AP exams will be focused on the first 75% of the course content. We do, however, recognize that giving students exposure to the final aspects of a course is imperative so that they are prepared for the sequent course they might be enrolled in if they earn qualifying exam scores.

IPOD Apps
- Educreations. http://www.educreations.com/
      You can turn your iPad into an interactive white board and record (and then export) explanations.

-
40 Best IPOD apps for students
-
IPOD Apps in Bloom's Taxonomy

 IPOD APPS from Jennifer Adams
- Notability - one I use almost every day. Turns your screen into an interactive whiteboard on which you can draw, type, highlight, add images, add audio, and much more. The more I use it, the more I like it.
- AppShopper - Apps tend to go on sale periodically, and taking a minute each day to check what apps are being offered for free has allowed me to get a ton of apps without paying a dime :)

CELLS
- iCell by Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology - 3D depictions of plant, animal and bacterial cells
-
3D Cell Stain by Invitrogen - allows you to apply their organelle stains to a cell and see the resulting microscopic image. My kids loved this one
-
NDSU Virtual Cell - has videos and quizzes for electron transport chain and photosynthesis
-
Powers of Minus Ten - takes a minute to figure out how to navigate, but has great graphical depictions of cellular and sub cellular structures.
- XVIVX Interactive Book on cord blood stem cells. Amazing images and embedded video
-
HHMI has begun make apps for their videos and virtual labs.

GENETICS
- The Human Genome At Ten - special iPad edition of Nature magazine. Includes articles, images & embedded video
-
CF GeneE by Vertex Pharmaceuticals - CFTR gene function with different mutations and disease distribution maps.
        A little over my students' heads, but they like it anyway
-
The World of Viruses by SEPA - a series of comic book like stories. I'm still not sure how I'll use them in class yet, but they're cool!

CHEMISTRY
- EMD Interactive Periodic Table
-
iHyperchem - molecule building tool
-
Molecules - you can search for complex bio molecules and it will bring up a rotatable structure

ENVIRONMENT
- Leaf Snap - awesome for looking at structures for a variety of plants, finding nearby species, and creating virtual collections.
-
Cachalot - information, videos and images of marine fauna from Duke University Marine Lab
-
Nature Conservancy Magazine - great stories and images
-
7 Billion - stunning population report by National Geographic. Embedded videos and images.
