Walter M. Williams AP Mission Statement
The Walter M. Williams Advanced Placement program offers independent, reflective students college-equivalent courses in line with their personal goals and potential, providing opportunities to collaborate with like-minded students.
Courses at Williams
Advanced Placement Chemistry is more than just a course in first-year college general chemistry. Whether or not your AP exam score qualifies you for college credit, there are many advantages of taking Advanced Placement Chemistry. It is an opportunity to prepare for college by challenging yourself with rigorous college-level work while you are still in high school. Your classmates will be some of the best and brightest students at Williams and the peer group you study with will enhance your own abilities as a student. Besides acquiring advanced knowledge of chemistry, the science central to all other science disciplines, you will develop your skills in analytical thinking, abstract reasoning, problem-solving, and effective communication. You will enhance your study skills, both as an individual and within a group, and you will increase your own ability to learn how to learn.
In AP English Language & Composition, we have three major goals: We hope to become better readers, we hope to become better thinkers, and we hope to become better writers. By reading professional writers' work and by analyzing those writers' rhetorical and stylistic choices, we will get better about thinking deliberately and intentionally about our own writing choices.
Environmental ScienceAPES: After only 4 billion years, an owners' manual for Earth! This is the most important class you will ever take.
AP Statistics teaches students about collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. It is unlike any math course you have taken before - get ready to WRITE! It is highly recommended that you have access to your own calculator both in class and at home. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lydia Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
United States History
AP World History is designed to be the equivalent of an introductory college or university world history course. In AP World History students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in six historical periods. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; making historical comparisons; utilizing reasoning about contextualization, causation, and continuity and change over time; and developing historical arguments.
The course provides five themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: interaction between humans and the environment; development and interaction of cultures; state building, expansion, and conflict; creation, expansion, and interaction of economic systems; and development and transformation of social structures.
