Important Note: The following chapters are being revised. We will notify teachers of these subjects if this material will be available in the 2018-19 school year:

  • Chapter 4: Quantitative Skills in AP Chemistry
  • Chapter 6: Quantitative Skills in AP Physics 1
  • Chapter 7: Quantitative Skills in AP Physics 2

Each AP science course focuses on the development of quantitative skills such as using measurements, gathering and evaluating data, using quantitative evidence to support claims, and connecting empirical information to scientific theory.

In each AP science course, students will perform several hands-on college-level investigations and other activities that are designed not only to meet the learning objectives for the course but also to give them multiple opportunities to acquire, develop, and apply these quantitative skills.

By the end of a course, students will be able to successfully organize and work with data so that they can effectively communicate the conclusions of their investigations.
