EARTH & ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

 This course is a laboratory-based science class emphasizing the function of the earth’s system. Emphasis is placed on human interactions with the Earth’s geologic and environmental systems, predictability of a dynamic Earth, origin and evolution of the Earth system and universe, geochemical cycles and energy in the Earth system.

BIOLOGY

This course is a laboratory-based science class in which students will study the cell, the molecular basis of heredity, biological evolution, interdependence of organisms, matter and energy, and organization in living systems and the behavior of organisms.

CHEMISTRY

Prerequisite: Math II

 The Chemistry course encourages students to continue their investigation of the structure of matter along with chemical reactions and the conservation of energy in these reactions. Inquiry is applied to the study of the transformation, composition, structure, and properties of substances. Laboratory investigations are used to stress important concepts relative to topics including molecular chemistry, electrochemistry, gas-laws, and acid-base reactions.

PHYSICS

Prerequisite: Math II

Physics, the most fundamental of the natural sciences, is quantitative in nature and uses the language of mathematics to describe natural phenomena. Inquiry is applied to the study of matter and energy and their interaction. The following topics are "uncovered" in this curriculum: conservation of mass and energy, conservation of momentum, waves, and interactions of matter and energy.
