Environmental Systems


Environmental Systems
Faculty: Aaron DeForge, Nancy Welch

In Environmental Systems, students conduct field and laboratory investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem-solving. Students study a variety of topics that include the following: biotic and abiotic factors in habitats, ecosystems, and biomes, interrelationships among resources and an environmental system, sources and flow of energy through an environmental system, the relationship between carrying capacity and changes in populations and ecosystems, and changes in environments.


Environmental Systems Advanced Placement
Faculty: Gayle Gregory, Sally Snook

This course is designed to be the equivalent of an introductory college course in environmental science. The goal of the course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the inter-relationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them. It is an interdisciplinary course with a strong laboratory component.
