Everyday from 7:00 A.M. to 7:45 A.M. for Biology, Biology II, and Physical Science
Physical Science is an introductory laboratory course to the study of chemistry and physics. Chemistry is the study of the properties, classes, and structure of matter and its changes. It includes such topics as the periodic table of elements, atomic structure, molecules, solutions, and chemical reactions. Physics is the study of the interrelationships of matter and energy. It includes topical studies in motion, electricity, sound, and heat.
Biology is a full year course in which a variety of instructional approaches will be used in order to provide students with opportunities for gaining factual knowledge and applying skills. Students will develop the ability to connect biological concepts, build higher-level skills, and develop their own viewpoint of the world around them. Content will focus on information and skills need for the biology end-of-course exam.
The students will not only be introduced to major themes of modern biology, but will also be introduced to critical thinking skills and process skills through laboratory investigations. The student will acquire a clear understanding of biological concepts, develop an awareness of the relevance of biology as an integral part of their everyday lives, and develop an appreciation of and interest in biology and all other sciences.
This class is laboratory based. Students will dig deeper into larger-scale biological concepts, such as evolutionary thought, speciation and macroevolution, taxonomy, bacteria, plants, and animals.
Students should take this course to learn about the plants, animals, and interactions in the world around them. Concepts in the class are used in your daily life!
