Physical Science is laboratory science course that explores the relationship between matter and energy. Students investigate physical science concepts through an inquiry-based approach. Embedded standards for Inquiry, Technology & Engineering, and Mathematics are taught in the context of the content standards for Energy, Matter, Motion, and Forces
A survey course designed to develop an understanding and appreciation of living organisms. Inquiry, observation, field study and experimentation provide a scientific view of our world. Contents include: cell structure and function, biochemistry, genetics, taxonomy, human systems, plants and animals. Beginning with students entering grade 9 in the 2012-2013 school year, students must earn a passing score or attain an equivalent score on the Biology 1 EOC Assessment in order to earn course credit.
For the talented student, advanced biology is an accelerated college preparatory course designed to develop an appreciative scientific attitude toward the interrelationship of living organisms. Inquiry, observation, field study, and experimentation provide students a scientific view of their world. Contents include the study of the scientific process, cellular and molecular biology, genetics and development, comparative anatomy, and human systems. Beginning with students entering grade 9 in the 2012-2013 school year, students must earn a passing score or attain an equivalent score on the Biology 1 EOC Assessment in order to earn course credit.
This is a lecture and laboratory course. The student will learn the importance of chemicals in our everyday life and how to make them work usefully in our world. This course would be helpful to a student planning to enter health services, cosmetology or laboratory services.
Chemistry 1 Honors
Emphasis is on developing the ability to think and to use available facts in the analysis of laboratory investigations. This course prepares students for college work in both biological and physical sciences.
Physics is a laboratory science course that examines the relationship between matter and energy and how they interact. This course will have a strong emphasis in the mathematics of physics. Students explore physics concepts through an inquiry approach. Embedded standards for Inquiry, Technology & Engineering, and Mathematics are taught in the context of the content standards for Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Waves and Sound, Light and Optics, Electricity and Magnetism and Atomic & Nuclear Science.
The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the marine environment. The content should include, but not be limited to, the following: the nature of science, the origins of the oceans, the chemical, physical, and geological aspects of the marine environment, ecology of various sea zones, marine communities, the diversity of marine organisms, characteristics of major marine ecosystems, characteristics of major marine phyla/divisions, and the interrelationship between man and the ocean.
Designed for the student who will major in science or who needs an in-depth background in environmental science, this course is equivalent to a one-year college survey course.
