AP Environmental Science Flashcards
Environmental science is the study of biological, physical and information sciences as well as the study of the environment and how to solve environmental problems. If you’ve been fascinated by the way people interact with the environment and how people affect the environment, you’ll likely enjoy the subject matter in the Advanced Placement Environmental Science course.
The course, also called AP Environmental Science, requires that students have completed a year of high school life science and a year of high school-level physical science, both with laboratory components. It is the equivalent of a single semester of a college-level environmental science class. Completion of this course may allow you to get college credit for the course and move into more complex topics when you begin college. There are many different topics to learn in this course, and as such, it’s not unusual for students to seek out study aids to help them better understand the materials.
One of these tools is a set of Flashcards for AP Environmental Science, offered as part of Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools. There are hundreds of flashcards in the set, covering topics that range from ecosystems and biology, to energy and biochemical cycles. Other topics include ecosystem development, population ecology, energy production and usage, global effects and dynamics, and material resources. There are also flashcards that focus on the types of environmental pollution, as well as the impacts of pollution: the ecological and economic impacts, as well as health impacts.
These free online flashcards include multiple-choice questions with up to five possible answers. When you examine and begin to use this Learning Tool, you’ll find flexibility. After you choose an answer, you’ll know immediately whether you chose correctly, or if you chose the wrong answer; each card provides the explanation of why the correct answer is what it is. If you want to go back to a flashcard you’ve already worked with, the system allows you to do just that. You can jump from topic to topic or focus on specific content areas if you choose. If you choose to create an account with Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools, you’ll have the option to use the flashcards builder to create your own personalized study aid, if you find that questions you’re looking for are not included in the premade flashcard set.
In addition to these online Flashcards for AP Environmental Science, Varsity Tutors’ Learning Tools also offers a Full-Length Practice Test to determine where you may have gaps in your understanding; there are over 100 shorter Practice Tests on specific topics that you can use as you move through your course work and prepare for the exam; and a Question of the Day series focuses on specific topics, a new one each day, within the realm of Environmental Science, allowing you to really dig into subjects if you wish. The final study aid offered is an interactive syllabus, called Learn by Concept, which offers students like you a combination of concepts to and practice questions that are designed to help you better understand the academic topic.
Our AP Environmental Science flashcards each contain one question that might appear on the AP Environmental Science exam. You can use them to get a comprehensive overview of each topic covered on the AP Environmental Science exam one problem at a time, or to do problem drills that focus on particular problem types or content areas found on the AP Environmental Science exam.
