  1. Apes class 2011-2012 • Lakshmi • Alexandra Bennet • Caleigh Davenport • Adhavan • Wonjoon • Seungjun • Milan • Dong Hwan

  2. AP Environmental Science: APES • “The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand theinterrelationships of the natural world, toidentify and analyze environmental problemsboth natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.”

  3. About APES • 1) It is an applied science. • 2) It is interdisciplinary: • biology, chemistry, physics, geology, ecology, economics, political science, math. • 3) It is both theoretical and practical. • 4) It has a relevant lab component
