• Welcome to AP Environmental Science

    Welcome to AP Environmental Science!  You have enrolled in a yearlong course equivalent to a 1st year college biology class. Since this course covers a substantial amount of material, you will be expected to complete many lab and reading assignments outside of class and actively apply your independent understanding and analytical skills to classroom discussion and laboratory activities.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, AP science classes are tough and those who are prone to procrastination will struggle.  Previous students have mentioned they put in about 2-3 hours per week on their AP science work.  As an AP science student, you must be committed to a year of intensive study and will be expected to take the AP exam in May. 

     
    We will be utilizing Google Classroom. Please log into google using your school account (sID#@gse.cusd80.com). You will joining my classroom during the beginning of the year. From there you will be able to access powerpoints, assignments and chapter quizzes.
