In AP Human Geography, students will explore how humans have understood, used, and changed the surface of the Earth. Students will use the tools and thinking processes of geographers to examine patterns of human population, migration, and land use. The focus of the course will be on connections between geographic concepts and processes to real-life scenarios, and seeing patterns and trends in data and in visual sources such as maps and drawing conclusions from them. In addition, students will explore spatial relationships using geographic scales.
