Welcome to AP-ES!

Course Description:

The AP Environmental Science course is a full-year course designed to be the equivalent of a one semester, introductory college course in environmental science.  The goal of AP Environmental Science 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 relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them.

Environmental science is interdisciplinary; it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Yet there are several major unifying constructs, or themes, that cut across the many topics included in the study of environmental science. The following themes provide a foundation for the structure of the AP Environmental Science course.

1. Science is a process.

2. Energy conversions underlie all ecological processes.

3. The Earth itself is one interconnected system.

4. Humans alter natural systems.

5. Environmental problems have a cultural and social context.

6. Human survival depends on developing practices that will achieve sustainable systems.
