AP Environmental Science (APES) Summer Work
You may be aware that this course has an extensive syllabus and is more interdisciplinary than most other science courses you have taken. We will be incorporating aspects of Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Government, and more. It is important that you come to class in August with a basis from which to begin the year. Below you will find your work for the summer. You will be expected to bring this to class on the first day of school and it will be graded. Due August 30
Part 1: Movie Assignment
