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).
