AP Environmental Science

Environmental Science/AP 255B 4 Credits

Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology and Chemistry

Advanced Placement Environmental Science is a two-trimester laboratory class that is the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course. Topics include interrelationships in the natural world, environmental problems, risks associated with these problems, and alternate solutions for resolving them.

Due to the quantitative analysis required in the course, students should be comfortable using algebra and performing calculations on tests without a calculator. Students are expected to complete nightly readings from the college-level text and other publications, and will participate in both short- and long-term research projects. Fieldwork focuses on our local environment. Summer reading will be required. The curriculum will prepare students to take the CEEB AP Environmental Science exam, given in May.
