THE AP EXAM IS MONDAY, MAY 6th, 2013
This course is designed to be the equivalent of a one-semester, introductory college course in environmental science. Its goal 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 and/or preventing them. As this is the equivalent of a college class, a certain amount of outside time dedicated to learning and reviewing this material is expected outside of class time.
Materials: * Textbook, Living in the Environment, 14th Edition by G. Tyler Miller. * Taking Sides, 13th Edition by Thomas A. Easton * Nylon book cover * Pencil * Pen (blue or black) * Outside clothing (things that you do not mind getting wet/dirty/muddy) including shoes * Lab notebook (composition bound or purchased from AOS)
All Loudoun County Public Schools rules are applicable in my classroom. As well, I would like to highlight the following policies. * Safety guidelines are to be followed. There will be no tolerance for breach of safety issues. Refer to your safety contract for more information. * Homework is to be turned in at the beginning of class the day it is due. If for some reason you are having difficulty completing an assignment, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to determine if an alternate assignment or extension can be arranged. * Under no circumstances should food or drink be consumed in the lab area. You may drink in the classroom, but drinks are not to leave the desk section of the class. * You are expected to abide by the AOS Honor code. Collaboration is expected and encouraged, but copying assignments will result in receiving a zero for that
