I don't use them so much myself, but several of those environments are in
the "LaTeX -> Insert Environment" or the "LaTeX -> Change Environment"
menus. I don't know if they are there by default or because I have
LaTeX-math-mode as a hook:

(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook (lambda ()
			     (LaTeX-math-mode)) t)

I also have the following, as part of my AUCTeX setup:

(require 'tex-site)
(autoload 'reftex-mode "reftex" "RefTeX Minor Mode" t)
(autoload 'turn-on-reftex "reftex" "RefTeX Minor Mode" nil)
(autoload 'reftex-citation "reftex-cite" "Make citation" nil)
(autoload 'reftex-index-phrase-mode "reftex-index" "Phrase Mode" t)
(add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'turn-on-reftex t) ; with Emacs latex mode
(add-hook 'reftex-load-hook 'imenu-add-menubar-index t)
(add-hook 'reftex-mode-hook 'imenu-add-menubar-index t)
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook '(lambda () (require 'latex-units)) t)
(add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook #'LaTeX-preview-setup t)

and for now, I'm very satisfied. In fact, it's probably more than I can
handle currently without getting too distracted from the actual content

For this particular question though, people in the auctex mailing list may
have better ideas.
