The A+ AP Science curricular materials are designed to encourage the development of student critical thinking skills, science practices, and content knowledge through a hands-on, guided inquiry approach.

The materials are intentionally aligned with the College Board’s new AP Course and Exam Description documents and are designed to prepare students for the rigors of the AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics 1, and AP Environmental Science AP Exams. The A+ provided resources for each unit in each course include: a set of comprehensive student notes, formative and summative assessments composed of AP-style questions, a comprehensive set of practice free response questions, a recommended set of labs with student protocols and teacher notes, AP-style math-based practice problems with solutions screencasts, Unit Pacing Guides, and Content PowerPoints. Each course also features a comprehensive set of AP Exam preparation/review materials.

The A+ College Ready Science Laying the Foundation, (LTF)-infused curricula are designed to provide students with the skills and content knowledge necessary to ultimately be successful in an AP Science course, in the workforce, and in life. The 6-10 prerequisite science courses require a student-facilitated, hands-on approach that weaves curriculum, pedagogy, and technology into a 5-E model of instruction designed to allow students to explore the world around them while making connections to big ideas in science.

Curricular resources include a nine-weeks big picture for each subject, pacing guides and recommended activities, detailed teacher notes, a student proficiency scale, student notes with embedded vocabulary and note interactions, corresponding student PowerPoint presentations, recommended grade-level labs and activities, checkpoint questions with grading rubrics, and optional unit assessment questions.
