High School Knowledge
During the last four years in high school, I've learned a lot in the classroom.
I've learned so much in AP Biology - from everything to the TCA cycle to classification of animals to protein synthesis and everything in between. One thing I learned in Bio is how genetics work, and it allowed me to understand why people have the characteristics that they do. I learned how traits are passed from generation to generation and I learned about how mutations can occur and create even more variations in the gene pool. I learned the most interesting things in AP Biology, because I learned about how life works and how it can be sustained and change over time. I learned about why people have chromosomal abnormalities and I learned about what causes diabetes and where cellular energy comes from. Essentially, I learned how life happens.
I also learned a lot in AP Chemistry. I finally mastered how to balance an oxidation-reduction reaction and I learned how buffers work (which allows our blood to stay around the same pH value, no matter what). I also learned how to study in different ways and take notes in different ways.
Finally, I learned the most in AP Spanish. Before I took the class, I could understand some Spanish, but nowhere near the level I would need to communicate in a Spanish-speaking country. However, after hard work, excessive amounts of practice, and hours of practice, I'm proud to say that I could communicate with a high level of proficiency in a Spanish-speaking country. Although it wasn't my favorite class, I've (quite possibly) learned the most in that class.
