AP Environmental Science




The resources listed below can be used to supplement the instruction of AP Environmental Science. They are geared to match College Board learning outcomes and test preparation, while also advancing critical thinking with real-world information about important policy issues. Environmental Science teachers who are not preparing for the AP test may also find the resources useful.

“The AP Environmental Science course is designed to be the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course in environmental science, through which students engage with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world. The course requires that students identify and analyze natural and human-made environmental problems, evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental Science is interdisciplinary, embracing topics from geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry, and geography.”
