    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    It is extremely important to always learn about the ongoings in our environment. People often times throw aside the importance of the environment, but in this class you really become aware of how you effect the environment on a daily basis.

    Course highlights:

    Learned about our own ecological footprint, analyze environment problems (man-made and natural), and learn a lot about the interrelationships within this world, environmentally speaking.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Always do all of your reading. This class is a very self-taught class, and you always need to do the assignments to gain all the information. This is not a blow off class at all. Definitely meet up with people outside of class to collaborate ideas and information about the unit you are on. Also keep up with current events relating to environmental science because it often times comes in handy to relate current events to topics you re learning in the unit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    AP Environmental Science is one of the most applicable courses I have ever taken. As I look around at the world around me, I now see the effects of human interaction with the Earth ever-so clearly. The course has made me more environmentally aware and concerned. The course entails many relevant topics such as renewable energy sources and different ways for the individual to support and protect biodiversity. The course has enabled me to have unique and very intellectual conversations about politics and our environment.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a great deal about the food industry, GMOs, etc, and we discussed the ethics in this business. I further learned of disasters such as the BP Oil Spill and Love Canal. We also dove into the idea of renewable energy and the practicality or impracticality in it. Moreover, we discussed animals and different environments and how nature works together. We also explored natural disasters such as tornadoes and erupting volcanoes. APES truly has something for everyone. It was not only a wonderful class, but also very eye-opening.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Immerse yourself in the course. Look for current events that relate to what you are learning in class-- this will make it all the more interesting. Be prepared to apply previously learned knowledge to knew and exciting ideas.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I learned a lot of information that I did not know before. I accomplished what I wanted to learn plus more.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about pollution. This was the main topic that I was most interested in. I learned about how it comes about, how to clean it up, and also how to prevent it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is different than some of the other ap courses. But after the first few tests, you get the hang of how the tests are worded. When reading, it is difficult to realize which information is important versus which is not as important. It got easier quickly after the first test.
