All Science courses are offered at the basic, intermediate, and honors levels. Science
Biology I This course introduces students to the study of biological sciences, and the specific terminology and methodology relating to the basic concepts of life and its processes. Topics studied will include scientific method, cell structure and function, basic biochemistry and genetics. A required, individual experimental project is an integral part of this course.
Biology II This class will focus on human systems, evolution, and ecology. The work you will do in this class will include labs, article reviews, writing assignments, quizzes, tests, and homework. Tests will be announced and the material will be from the lecture notes, labs, quizzes and class work. Quizzes may be unannounced. You are responsible for all material and assignments missed due to absences. I can be available for tutoring and extra help after school. Please see me to arrange a time.
This course introduces the fundamental terms of chemistry, metric measurement and the basic classification system for matter. Students will be able to balance chemical equations and solve problems concerning mass.
Chemistry This course introduces the fundamental terms of Chemistry including metric measurement and the basic classification system for matter. Topics include the nomenclature of chemistry from elemental symbols to compounds and formulas. An emphasis is placed on laboratory skills and experiences as students explore chemical and physical properties of matter, bond types, effects of solutes and chemical reactions.
Physics This course is designed to introduce and strengthen key concepts of physics concerning the relationship between matter and energy, velocity and acceleration, Newton’s Laws of Motion, universal gravitation and the nature of sound. Measurement, problem solving and critical thinking are also covered including the techniques used in interpreting data, equations and graphs with emphasis on vector analysis.
