AP® Environmental Science is a two-semester introductory college-level science course. This course aims to provide students with scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies needed to understand interrelationships in the natural world; identify and analyze environmental problems (natural and human-made); evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems; and examine alternative solutions to resolve or prevent these problems. Unifying themes in the course, identified by the College Board, provide a foundation for the content.

The course views environmental problems and possible solutions to them through the lens of sustainability, which is the integrating theme of the textbook. Material is based on the belief that most people can live comfortable and fulfilling lives, and that societies will be more prosperous and peaceful, when sustainability becomes one of the chief measures by which personal choices and public policies are developed.

The book for the course goes beyond the traditional “lift and shift” model by creating a unique learning path of relevant readings, multimedia, and activities that move students up the learning taxonomy from basic knowledge and comprehension to analysis and application. Content can be customized for the specific needs of a group or an individual student. Instructors can add materials and link to other content. Using the online platform called MindTap, teachers can customize content to control what students experience and when they experience it.

This is the second semester of a two semester course.
