I would like to put all my Grade 7 students in one classroom. After that, I would like to have 4 different groups in one classroom. 

Students will become familiar with the principles of chemistry and scientific inquiry through experimentation. The course traces the developments that led to our modern understanding of Atomic Theory and its applications to diverse topics ranging from kinetics and thermodynamics to acid-base and electrochemical reactions. Students will learn to design and conduct their own scientific investigations and present and debate their findings as a scientific community. Lastly, students will develop proportional reasoning skills through repeated application to a variety of topics.

 In this class, the ultimate purpose of education is to ignite a passion for curiosity, responsibility, and respect for other human beings as well as the world around us. In order to ignite these passions, students will develop a tendency towards questioning, a sense of open-mindedness, an aptitude towards creativity, the ability to think critically towards problem solving, and mindsets of empathy and deep learning.

The purpose of Introductory Biology is to familiarize ninth grade students with major biological concepts and scientific skills. These themes provide a foundation for the structure of this class. Students will learn how to make scientific observations; gather data and make inferences; develop critical thinking skills; and draw conclusions from the data. Students are encouraged to analyze scientific issues from various viewpoints and to evaluate these issues based on scientific evidence and data.

Biology is interdisciplinary: it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Topics that students will study include Scientific Methods and the Nature of Science, Ecosystems and the Environment, Cells, Bacteria, and Biochemistry, Plants, and Animals. After successfully completing this course students will be prepared to study more advanced biological concepts. Students will also have a greater appreciation for the living world around us!

Welcome to Physics! The purpose of this course is to explore and investigate the classical laws governing the physical universe. Students will examine and seek to explain various physical phenomena, based on these fundamental laws.


This course will teach students the basics of Biology and help prepare them for college. Topics covered include cells and energygeneticsheredity, evolution, and human systems.

 

Welcome to Introduction to Biology 301! 

Biology is interdisciplinary: it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Topics that you will study include Scientific Methods and the Nature of Science, Ecosystems and the Environment, Cells, Bacteria, and Biochemistry, Plants, and Animals. You will also have a greater appreciation for the living world around us!


This course is designed to simulate college-level study for those students who show particular strength in mathematics. It aims to develop students’ ability to analyze, evaluate and synthesize scientific information. It covers kinematics, Newton’s laws of motion, work, energy and power, system of particles and linear momentum, circular motion and rotation, and oscillations and gravitation. The course also includes a hands-on laboratory component comparable to an introductory college-level physics course. Calculus is used freely in formulating principles and in solving problems. Enrolled students are expected to take the AP Physics C exam in May.

Prerequisites: PHY 601, Advanced Calculus I and department consent


In this year-long upper level science elective, we will investigate the structures and functions of the brain and nervous system. The course will cover in depth each of the senses (vision, taste, hearing, touch, and smell) so we can develop a scientific understanding of how we perceive the world around us. Additionally, we will look at different neurotransmitters in the brain and explore their pathways to determine the significance they have on our actions and behaviors. In the second half of the course, we will examine diseases and disorders of the brain, including Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s so we can see how neural degeneration impacts our lives and those around us. The course will culminate with group projects that allow for in depth research into a topic of interest and will result in multimedia presentations.

The purpose of this course is to explore and investigate the classical laws governing the physical universe. Naturally, these arrive through the study of patterns and trends within data. Students will examine, describe and use their understanding to explain various physical phenomena, based on fundamental laws.

 


This course is designed to provide students with skills needed to enhance their learning of biology, and provide knowledge for advanced science courses as well as everyday life.
