Biology/Life Science core content is focused on the use of life science principles as powerful conceptual tools to make sense of the complexity, diversity and interconnectedness of life on earth. Students engage in laboratory and authentic learning experiences that encourage the application of biological knowledge to make decisions and solve problems. This course is designated for students with exceptional math and science skills. The course covers the major topics of modern biology and students must demonstrate active participation and independent study.
Prerequisite: Honors Biology/Honors Algebra II
The topics covered in this course include those covered in academic chemistry but at a more rigorous pace. Students must have exceptional math and science skills and be independent learners.
This is a course that will give students an understanding of Physical Science principles, including fundamental ideas about matter, energy, and motion. Topics include: the science of Physics, motion in one dimension, two-dimensional motion and vectors, forces and the laws of motion, work and energy, momentum and collisions, circular motion and gravitation, fluid mechanics, heat, thermodynamics, vibrations and waves, sound, light, electrical energy, circuits and magnetism.
