    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I loved the teacher that taught this course. While he was an odd guy with some bizarre stories, he made the class fun and engaged all the students in the room. He made the subject interesting enough to offset the difficulty in the classroom. I ended up loving environmental science and it was fascinating to learn about the subject.

    Course highlights:

    Where do I begin? In AP Environmental Science -better known as APES- we talked about the relationship between humans and the environment. This included a multitude of subjects such as climate change, all the forms of making energy (solar, water, fossil fuels, etc.), mining, the structure of the biosphere (soil levels, biomes, air quality), environmental toxicology, population math, and more. I really loved the climate change section of the course. It was very eye opening to me to see just how poorly we've affected the planet. 100 years ago, it would have been safe to say the the planet will last a long time but ow, we're frantically looking for ways to be sustainable. I had a wonderful opportunity to learn about the Earth and more importantly, how we as humans impact it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students who take this course need to read the book and read it thoroughly. Don't just skim the pages and look at pictures. It won't help. Once you've read, you need to break down the material. It isn't enough just to read the book. You need to understand the concepts and how they're all interrelated. I found that making concept maps was really helpful. A concept map begins with the largest concept in the middle and then branches out into subcategories and all of the facts that coincide with them. This really helps to see the connections between every bit of information you look at. I would warn you that these concept maps are time consuming but they pay off in the long run. Basically, make sure you actually know the material and don't just convince yourself that you do.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    She wastes a lot of time and doesn't teach very well. Doesn't respond well to criticism.

    Course highlights:

    I learned basic physics. I also learned some people shouldn't be teachers.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared for homework in 2nd semester, 15+ assignments due in a week.
