SCIENCE

 

Course: BIOLOGY

Description: Biology students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students also study a variety of topics that include structures and functions of cells and viruses; growth and development of organisms; cells, tissues, and organs; nucleic acids and genetics; biological evolution; taxonomy; metabolism and energy transfers in living organisms; living systems; homeostasis; and ecosystems and the environment.

Credit: 1 Grade Placement: 9

 

Course: CHEMISTRY

Description: Chemistry students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include characteristics of matter, use of the Periodic Table, development of atomic theory and chemical bonding, chemical stoichiometry, gas laws, solution chemistry, thermochemistry, and nuclear chemistry. Students will investigate how chemistry is an integral part of our daily lives.

Credit: 1 Grade Placement: 10-12

 

Course: INTEGRATED PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY (IPC)

Description: Integrated Physics and Chemistry students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigation, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. This course integrates the disciplines of physics and chemistry in the following topics: force, motion, energy, and matter.

Credit: 1 Grade Placement: 10

 

Course: ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

Description: Anatomy and Physiology topics include the structure and function of the human body and the interaction of body systems for maintaining homeostasis. Students will conduct laboratory investigations, use scientific methods, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving.

Credit: 1 Grade Placement: 11-12

 

Course: ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS

Description: Environmental Systems students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: biotic and abiotic factors in habitats, ecosystems and biomes, interrelationships among resources and an environmental system, sources and flow of energy through an environmental system, relationship between carrying capacity and changes in populations and ecosystems, and changes in environments.

Course: PHYSICS

Description: Physics students conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: laws of motion; changes within physical systems and conservation of energy and momentum; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. Students who successfully complete Physics will acquire factual knowledge within a conceptual framework, practice experimental design and interpretation, work collaboratively with colleagues, and develop critical thinking skills.
