Marine Biology Simulation
Case studies are a teaching tool used in many disciplines. They have been a part of the AP® Computer Science curriculum since the 1994-95 academic year. They give students an opportunity to:
The Java-based Marine Biology Simulation case study presents a simplified version of a simulation program that could be used to help marine biologists study fish movement in a small, bounded environment such as a lake or bay. It was a required part of the AP Computer Science A and AB curricula from 2003-2004 through 2006-2007. (Computer Science A students were expected to be familiar with the material in chapters 1 - 4 of the case study narrative; AB students were expected to be familiar with the material in all 5 chapters.)
