The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the negative risks associated with these problems and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing these problems. The class will be inquiry driven with hands-on labs applying concepts learned through research and instruction. Students should be prepared to invest a great deal of time and energy into the course. In order to succeed on the AP exam, it is imperative that students remain consistently focused and organized throughout the entire year.
