AP* Online Classes

Mrs. Olsson is a great teacher--always helpful, kind, and quick to respond. At first I was concerned that I would not do well on the test, but Mrs. Olsson's class and assignments helped me to feel very confident on AP test day. I will greatly miss the class, as it helped pique my love for environmental science even more.

File Format Showdown Entry: PDF

During our Unit 2 work with digital information, we learn about different file types, lossy and lossless compression and how to encode images.

We have a "File Format Showdown" in which students must select their favorite file format (within the categories of text, image, audio, video, or "other") and argue for it with an infographic, a one-pager written response, and an in-class debate. 

One excellent infographic example is displayed here with the student's permission.
