Frequently Asked Questions
The College Board has made a one-time exception to the “wet labs only” rule for AP Biology due to the Covid-19 virus. We have identified several places teachers can go to access labs that would meet the need:
- The AP Calculus book is available for purchase through the publisher. Schools and districts can purchase the textbook by sending purchase orders to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Parents can order by phone at 1-800-848-9500 or at www.savvas.com
The publisher indicates that it takes 7-10 days to deliver the textbook.
No. Students are required to complete the entire AP course. No content from the course can be removed.
Schools utilizing our AP courses must go through the AP Course Audit process and select Edgenuity as the provider. Use the syllabus numbers here to select the course(s) your school is offering, and this will allow the school to use the AP designation on student transcripts.
Textbooks are also required for every AP course except for Spanish and French. Our courses include assignments from best-in-class, College-Board-recommended textbooks that are readily available from major textbook sellers. Please review the Implementing AP Courses Document to see exactly which book is required for students. This information can also be found when you select a specific AP course from the Manage Courses page, select View Course Structure, then review the Course Documents for that specific course.
The required textbooks listed on the Implementing AP Courses document are approved for the 2020-2021 school year. Please refer to that list when purchasing the AP texts for the upcoming school year.
We understand that there are some textbook shortages this year. In an effort to alleviate some of the stress, we have compiled an open-source replacement for the AP U.S. History textbook. For AP World History, there is a document that lists the links to some of the readings from the Comparative Reader.
|AP U.S. History - Textbook Reading Equivalents||AP World History - Modern- Textbook Reading Equivalents|
Sometimes there are other versions of the textbooks that are listed for AP Courses. The following links are important if another version of the textbook is purchased.
|AP English Language and Composition||AP English Literature and Composition|
|AP Environmental Science||AP World History – Modern – Readings from the Comparative Reader|
In addition to textbooks, schools must also provide a highly-qualified teacher to teach an AP course. Teachers are expected to interact with students regularly either face to face or via chat and email. Teachers need to grade open-ended student responses, including essays. They also should set up online discussions in the Collaboration Corner, using the Edgenuity provided discussion questions in each unit.
