What educators are saying

These review packets are very helpful. The students like the format and layout, and it covers the main points of each unit very well. I also appreciate all of the resources listed at the end!
Awesome Resource! Using as an extra review and supplemental resource for students who want that Strive for a Five!

Air Pollution Review and Review and Study Guide for APES Unit 7, aligned to the AP Environmental Science Course and Exam Description! Perfect for use in distance learning or in class!

Students will know exactly what College Board expects them to learn. Each Essential Standard is written out on the left side of the paper, with focused, aligned, open ended questions on the right side for students to work through.

Most of the questions are open ended, asking students to think critically and put concepts together in meaningful ways. Students are also asked to draw, label, and annotate diagrams, create graphs, explain data sets, and justify reasoning.

Review and Study Questions for all eight Topics in Unit 7:

  • 7.1 Introduction to Air Pollution
  • 7.2 Photochemical Smog
  • 7.3 Thermal Inversion 
  • 7.4 Atmospheric CO2 and Particulates
  • 7.5 Indoor Air Pollutants
  • 7.6 Reduction of Air Pollutants
  • 7.7 Acid Rain 
  • 7.8 Noise Pollution

Includes a full answer key!

AND a digital copy so you can share with your students to complete digitally! Open it in Google Docs and then make a copy for your own Google Drive to edit as needed.

**BONUS** Save hours of time searching for resources to teach with! Purchase includes a curated list of links to 28 extra resources - arranged and organized for each unit topic. The list includes links to online interactive activities, video clips, and Lab ideas and classroom activities for your students.

Your AP Environmental Science students benefit tremendously from having quick access to the Essential Knowledge standards and these guiding questions. After going through each set, they will feel confident they are ready for the Exam!

The APES Unit 7 Review can be used several ways:

  • While going through a Unit as a working document, a learning guide, students can add to it as they read though the text book or listen to lecture
  • To complete just before a Unit test as a study guide
  • At the end of the semester to prepare for the AP Environmental Science Exam

When used as a learning guide: It is helpful to have students begin the Unit by going through the Essential Knowledge itself, highlighting key vocabulary.  This gives them a good foundation to grow from, they know what to look for and what is important as they learn about, or review for the Unit.

When my students use these as review, I put them into small groups of three or four. They work together to complete the questions. Then students get into new groups and review their answers. I help guide them and help with questions that they can not come to an agreement on.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Create a computational simulation to illustrate the relationships among the management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity. Examples of factors that affect the management of natural resources include costs of resource extraction and waste management, per-capita consumption, and the development of new technologies. Examples of factors that affect human sustainability include agricultural efficiency, levels of conservation, and urban planning. Assessment for computational simulations is limited to using provided multi-parameter programs or constructing simplified spreadsheet calculations.
Evaluate competing design solutions for developing, managing, and utilizing energy and mineral resources based on cost-benefit ratios. Emphasis is on the conservation, recycling, and reuse of resources (such as minerals and metals) where possible, and on minimizing impacts where it is not. Examples include developing best practices for agricultural soil use, mining (for coal, tar sands, and oil shales), and pumping (for petroleum and natural gas). Science knowledge indicates what can happen in natural systems—not what should happen.
Evaluate or refine a technological solution that reduces impacts of human activities on natural systems. Examples of data on the impacts of human activities could include the quantities and types of pollutants released, changes to biomass and species diversity, or areal changes in land surface use (such as for urban development, agriculture and livestock, or surface mining). Examples for limiting future impacts could range from local efforts (such as reducing, reusing, and recycling resources) to large-scale geoengineering design solutions (such as altering global temperatures by making large changes to the atmosphere or ocean).
