AP Environmental Science Syllabi 2018-2019 Mrs. Meredith Saalwaechter [email protected] 270-274-3366 Course Description : This Course provides students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies to understand the interrelationships of the natural work, and analyze environmental problems and examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or prevent them. Text: Living in the Environment , 18 th ed. Miller, g. Tyler Supplies: Three ring binder Loose-leaf paper Composition Notebook Folder Dividers for binder (optional) Pen/pencil Class Expectations: 1. Be respectful to your classmates and your teacher. 2. Be prepared for class. 3. Be attentive at all times. 4. Do not sit at lab tables unless instructed to do so. 5. You may have gum, and drinks (with lids) unless it becomes a problem in my classroom. No sunflower seeds! AP Environmental Science is designed to be a high school course for Science majors in college. To that end, the expectations of the class might be more rigorous that you have had previously. Students that usually do well have to put in a lot of time and effort. In this class, you will be assessed on your understanding of the material, not just your ability to memorize. You will have to think, read, write, and develop models to describe common sets of ideas. Many times you will not necessarily just be told how to think about something. Rather, you will be empowered with the tools to construct meaning of the concepts in your minds. While I will help you through this process as much as possible, it is important that you take ownership of your leaning. Students have often asked, “what do I need to do to do well in this course.” Students who do well are those who are not afraid to ask questions and think about concepts. Students who only think about what is taught while sitting in class or while studying an hour the night before an assessment, typically will have trouble on the assessment. As such, it will be my goal throughout this school year to make sure I give you as much of a chance to think about the concepts as possible.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
