This course, the equivalent of a first-semester college-level environmental science course, covers the scientific principles of ecology, chemistry, and statistics that are used to understand how the systems of the Earth are interrelated. Emphasis is placed on how science deals with the environmental issues facing our world and the many possible solutions to these problems. At the same time, the course aims to provide the social, political, and ethical framework in which environmental decision-making occurs. Students receive preparation for the AP Exam in Environmental Science.
