Science Education

SCIENCE 7:

 This course is a basic introduction to the study of living things. It is designed to prepare students for taking biology in high school. Students will learn to be problem solvers, design experiments, use lab equipment, and keep a lab notebook. The curriculum will cover human biology systems, to include human reproduction, cellular structure and function, ecology and water monitoring, basic classification systems, genetics and heredity, and basic plant structure and function.

SCIENCE 8:  

This course covers the natural process that occurs on earth. Topics will include; rocks and minerals, water cycle, fossil fuels, weather and our solar system.

Physical Science

(2 Semesters) *9
1 Credit
Physical Science explores the physical world. This course will include a lecture/lab format. It is a very hands-on class. Topics covered will include: motion, forces and energy, matter, the periodic table, chemical bonding and reactions, magnetism, electricity and waves. The development of scientific process will be integrated throughout the course. This course is required of freshmen level students. It is a pre-requisite for all other science classes.

 

Astronomy

 

(1 Semester) 9-10-11-12
.5 Credit

In Astronomy, we will cover the nature and evolution of the solar system, stars, galaxies, cosmology and life in the universe. Students will apply the techniques that astronomers use to study the Earth, Moon, Sun, planets, and stars.

Biology

(2 Semesters)* 9-10-11-12
1 Credit

Biology is a required class that is the study of all living organisms. Understanding life and life processes depends on principles and properties applicable to life at all levels of organization. This course provides students, knowledge to major biological themes including cell biology, molecular biology, human biology, biotechnology, classification, evolution, genetics, and animal diversity. This course consists of a lecture-laboratory format designed for students to obtain basic knowledge of biology. Freshmen are allowed to use as elective with prior consent and testing of instructor.

Environmental Science

(2 Semesters)* 12
1 Credit
Prerequisite - Biology
(limited number of students) Environmental Science is the study of interrelationships between organisms and their environments including human interactions with these environments. Students gain basic ecological knowledge of hierarchal principals of nature and how that nature affects different ecosystems. Students explore relationships of organic and inorganic matter in wetland areas, ponds, rivers, forests and prairies and to include topics in Upper Mississippi Biology. Students discuss soil, water and land conservation and pollution, alternative energy sources and global warming issues. This course consists of classroom lecture and outdoor laboratory - lecture.

Advanced Biology

(2 Semesters) *10-11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisite – Biology
& Chemistry
This course is a college prepatory course intended for students who expect to major in science related fields in college or who have a great interest in Biology and want to continue concepts learned in Biology. It is a rigorous course taught in traditional lecture laboratory format. It consists of cell biology, embryo development, classification, animal diversity, genetics, molecular biology, biotechnology, botany and microbiology.

Anatomy and Physiology

(2 Semesters) *11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisites - Biology and Chemistry
This course is a college prepatory course intended for students who expect to major in science or medical related fields in college or who have a great interest in Biology. Anatomy and Physiology is a two-semester study of the structure and the functions of the human body. It consists of detailed study of various systems of the body such as the skeletal, circulatory, reproductive, etc. Students may take both semesters or fall semester. Students are encouraged but not required to take Advanced Biology prior to the course. This class is college prep for those students majoring in a science field. This class is lecture format.

Chemistry I

(2 semesters) *10-11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisite - Student must be enrolled in Algebra II or have taken Algebra II
Chemistry is the study of matter and the changes it undergoes. Students will focus on the structure of matter and how it changes through chemical reactions and physical reactions. Topics covered will include: scientific measurement, atomic structure, Periodic Table, ionic and metallic bonding, covalent bonding, chemical names and formulas, states of matter, behavior of gases, behavior of liquids and solutions, stoichiometry, and thermochemistry. Information will be presented in a variety of methods. We will continue to work on the process of scientific inquiry.

Chemistry II

(2 semesters) *11-12
1 Credit
Prerequisite – Successful completion of Chemistry I
This course is a continuation of Chemistry I. It is highly recommended that students, who are required to take Chemistry in college, complete two full years of Chemistry in high school. We will revisit many of the topics covered in Chemistry I. These topics will include more in depth study of the topics and application of higher-level math skills. In addition, time will be spent on the following topics: chemical kinetics, equilibrium, thermodynamics, aqueous reactions and solution stoichiometry, and current issues involving chemistry and the chemical industry. This course will follow a traditional lecture and lab format--with plenty of inquiry and hands-on activities.

Physics

(2 semesters)*11- 12
1 Credit
Prerequisite: Physical Science and Biology
Students should also be a strong math student
This course is designed to give students a look at the physical world. It should be a good introduction for a college Physics course. This course will focus on: Mechanics, Properties of Matter, Heat, Sound and Light, and Electricity and Magnetism. This course will be presented as an Inquiry-based class. There will be many labs and hands-on activities. Students will get to see their math and science skills in action. Algebra and Geometry are integrated throughout the course. 

 


Microbiology

(1 Semester) *11-12
.5 Credit
Prerequisite – Biology

This course examines microorganisms and their activities. Topics include microbial cell structure and function, metabolism, microbial genetics, and the role of microorganisms in disease, immunity, and other selected applied areas. Laboratory covers a variety of microbiological techniques with major concepts of bacteriology and immunology. Students will learn to isolate of a broad range of nonpathogenic bacteria from natural sources, using selective techniques and microscopic identification.
