Welcome to the Lighthouse Initiative for Science Classrooms!
The Lighthouse Initiative for Science Classrooms is intended to familiarize teachers with the content and skills a student needs to ultimately be successful in one or more of the AP* science courses. Here you will find course descriptions for the AP sciences, sample AP exam questions and solutions and their relationships to earlier science courses, suggestions for vertically aligned lab activities for grades 6–12 with a correlation to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and much more.
This site was reviewed in spring 2008 for formatting consistency and adherence to standard copyright guidelines for educational materials. The review did not include modification to the content contributed by the development committee for the Lighthouse Initiative for Science Classrooms.
