Course Outline
Exam Information

Please note: The following outline is intended as a rough guide to the order of the course, associated topics, and assignments.  It does not include all assignments, quizzes or labs.  Dates are also subject to change depending on the abilities of the students and external influences (tropical systems, district and statewide testing etc.).   I will update this page as the course progresses.

Notes will be available for each major section (click on the appropriate link) and have proven very useful to previous students - however, they are not a requirement, just an additional resource.

Notes are in PDF format.  Most computers have a PDF reader but if not, you can download Adobe Reader for free by clicking on the link below.

BEWARE !  THE AP CURRICULUM AND EXAM CHANGED IN 2013-2014 THEREFORE CLASS NOTES, ASSIGNMENTS AND LABS FROM PREVIOUS YEARS MAY BE CHANGED.  DO NOT USE PREVIOUS YEARS' NOTES FROM FORMER STUDENTS.
