One Month AP Environmental Science Study Guide

You’re probably starting to feel the pressure of your upcoming AP exams. Don’t worry, we are here to help. We have created this 30-day study routine so you don’t have to worry too much about where to focus your time and energy. The AP Environmental Science exam will be no walk in the park, but let us guide you through your studying. AP Environmental Science. Unit 6: Nonrenewable Energy - Mrs. Gretchen Whelan. Losing Earth: The Decade We Almost Stopped Climate Change. This narrative by Nathaniel Rich is a work of history, addressing the 10-year period from 1979 to 1989: the decisive decade when humankind first came to a broad understanding of the causes and dangers of climate change. Complementing the text is a series of aerial photographs and videos, all shot over the past year by George Steinmetz.

With support from the Pulitzer Center, this two-part article is based on 18 months of reporting and well over a hundred interviews. It tracks the efforts of a small group of American scientists, activists and politicians to raise the alarm and stave off catastrophe. It will come as a revelation to many readers — an agonizing revelation — to understand how thoroughly they grasped the problem and how close they came to solving it.

AP Environmental Science Test: Pollution

Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, are a group of industrial compounds that have caused many environmental problems. Until 1979 they were manufactured in plastics and insulating electrical transformers. Even though they are not longer manufactured, they are still present in the environment because of their long-term persistence. Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, or DDT, is an insecticide designed to target nerve transmissions in pests. It was found that DDT moved up the aquatic food chain all the way up to eagles, causing eagles’ to produce thin shells that broke before the embryo developed.

Perchlorates are used for rocket fuel, and are easily leached from contaminated soil into the groundwater where they can persist for many years. Polybrominated diphenyl (PBDEs) ethers are flame retardants added to a variety of items including construction materials, furniture and clothing. Multiple choice.

Is wood a green source of energy? Scientists are divided

But it takes just seconds to turn the oak into fuel for the furnace of a European power plant. A logging machine—a cross between a tank and a one-armed crab—grabs the tree with a metal claw. With a screech, a spinning blade bites through the trunk. Ultimately, the thickest bits of this tree and hundreds of others from this forest will be sliced into lumber. But the limbs from large trees like this, along with entire small or crooked trees, go to a specialized mill to be squeezed into tiny wood pellets. The idea is attractively simple, says Abt, a member of an expert panel that is studying the concept for the U.S. Ecocolumn instructions. TEXTBOOK RESOURCES - Venice High APES.

I’ve previously posted about Jo Boaler’s work (see Great New Video: “When People Make Mistakes Their Brains Grow, More Than When They Got Work Right”).

New Video: Jo Boaler On Learning, Mistakes & The Brain

Thanks to Dan Meyer, I learned that her TEDx Talk was just posted today. It’s titled “How you can be good at math, and other surprising facts about learning” and it’s definitely not just applicable to math. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Showing Students That They Make Their Brain Stronger By Learning: Related Fascinating Study On What Learning From Mistakes Does To The Brain. Can You 'Catch' Stress in a Classroom? Science Says Yes. Head lice and strep throat aren’t the only things you can catch in a classroom. According to a new study from Canada, stress may be contagious, too. Researchers found that when 4th- to 7th-grade teachers reported feeling "burned out," their students also had elevated stress levels. The study "is the first of its kind connecting teachers' stress-related experiences to students' stress physiology in a real-life setting," the researchers wrote in their study, published today (June 27) in the journal Social Science & Medicine. [10 Scientific Tips for Raising Happy Kids] Teacher burnout is likely the leading reason for which teachers leave the profession, according to the study.

Previous research suggested that teachers who report higher levels of burnout also report having higher stress levels as well as being less effective in their classroom management and their teaching, the researchers wrote.
