AP Biology Summer Assignment 2017-2018
Due: 1st day back to school in August
The assignment may be typed or written in black or blue pen. Answers must be in your own words.
You will “NOT” be tested over the 5 Ecology Chapters on the 1st day back. We will go through the
chapters together, and then have a test. The purpose of the assignment is to familiarize yourself with the
AP Biology book.
