ADVANCED PLACEMENT SCIENCE COURSES
AP Biology focuses on eight overarching themes – science as a process, evolution, energy transfer, continuity and change, relationship of structure to function, regulation, interdependence in nature and science technology, and society.
This course is an in depth study of chemical concepts, principles, and applications. Related areas of study are: structure of matter, states of matter, reactions, descriptive chemistry, and laboratory work.
AP Environmental Science
This course integrates Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry, Physics, Law and History to explore the natural world. Students will employ critical thinking skills to explore the integration of ecosystems and the connections between living and nonliving things. They will also examine the substantial effects of worldwide human activity on the Earth through scientific discoveries, case studies, and current events. There will be at least one scheduled field trip during the year, which will facilitate student understanding of the ecology of Queens.
AP Physics C
This course is an in depth study of physics concepts in classical mechanics and motion. This course is suitable for future college engineering majors and those interested in a calculus based physics course. Completion of regents physics is required before taking AP Physics C.
