      Course Description:

        APES is the equivalent of an introductory college course in Environmental Science. The goal of this course is to identify natural and man-made environmental problems, study their effects and evaluate solutions.   This course promotes environmental literacy so that students are better prepared to make decisions regarding these issues. Additionally, this course will help build a sense of stewardship towards the environment.  Topics covered include waste management, toxic risks, ecology, agriculture, climate change, air pollution, water pollution, energy resources, population growth, water resources and endangered species.  

       

      Prerequisites:

      ·        Successful completion of 1 year of Biology and 1 year of Chemistry (C or better) or A in Oceanography with teacher recommendation.

      ·        A minimum GPA of 3.3 and a great attitude with an interest in the environment.


      Coursework:

          This is a rigorous course with a significant lecture and laboratory component characteristic of any college science course. Instruction consists mostly of lectures, discussions, presentations, and experiment/laboratory work.  Outside reading material will also be assigned.  Approximately one period per week is devoted to hands-on laboratory experiences.  All labs require a written analysis. Student progress and mastery of course content will be measured through written exams, quizzes on assigned readings, laboratory experiments and field investigations, presentations and class participation. Topics for this course are outlined on the College Board's® Advanced Placement Program® website and may also be viewed on my website. AP Environmental is a laboratory and field-based course and as such fieldtrips are required (only 1-2 per year). Students are also expected to take the AP College board exam at the end of the semester
