This is a class for students who need to fulfill their Chemistry requirement for graduation and are not likely going into a science or math related field of study in college. The course focuses on the major concepts of chemistry: matter, chemical properties, making measurements - the mole, organization of the periodic table, chemical compounds & bonding, and chemical reactions. Of course, there is a good amount of measurement and calculation involved.
The study of Biology is primarily devoted to living things and their processes. Specifically, How do WE as individuals in this environment relate and interact to what’s around and inside us? This course will provide students an opportunity to develop scientific process skills, laboratory techniques and an understanding of the fundamental principles of living organisms. Students will explore biological science as a process, cell structure and function, genetics and heredity, evolution and classification, diversity of living organisms and their ecological roles, and will explore an introduction to human structure and function. Our goal in science is to prepare students for the rapidly changing future while mastering the Standards of Learning.
