Biology 9-10th $475

TUESDAY 9:30am – 11:30am

This A-G level biology course is designed to take the student through a general study of living matter. Students will learn basic biological principles and explore the diversity of life on Earth. They will study the present form and function of organisms, from cells to organ systems, from simple viruses to complex Homo sapiens. There are more than twenty-five hand-on lab/lab activities covering biochemistry, cell biology, microbiology, bacteria, viruses, fungi, protists, plants, animals & animal behavior, and ecology. Along with a variety of dissections and modeling there are student-led investigations that allow the student to pursue individualized areas of inquiry.  In addition, students will learn microscopic and aseptic techniques together with laboratory safety and proficiency. Emphasis will be on disciplinary core ideas (content), scientific practices, and crosscutting concepts, coupling practice with content to apply the material in a meaningful way to the world, and analyzing & proposing ways to minimize human impacts on biodiversity.  The year culminates in a student-led multi-week lab project with a poster presentation and an optional field trip.

TUESDAY 9:30am – 11:30am

HONORS Biology 9-10th $500

TUESDAY 9:30am – 11:30am

This A-G level Honors Biology course includes all of the material in Biology with the addition of one written assignment per semester and group meeting with the instructor to discuss the required reading of Rachel Carson’s, “Silent Spring”. We will talk about the biological environmental implications of widespread toxicity in the environment due to pesticides and herbicides.

Silent Spring
by Rachel Carson. 1962
ISBN13: 9780618249060
Widely available at online used bookstores.

 





TUESDAY 9:30am – 11:30am

General Chemistry 10-12th $475

THURSDAY     9:00am – 11:15am

General Chemistry is a first-year introductory A-G level class that explores chemical phenomena. Through lectures, class discussions, small group activities, homework, labs and class lab challenges, students will explore chemical concepts as they apply to the world around them. Emphasis will be on disciplinary core concepts, both qualitative and quantitative laboratory inquiry, mathematical modeling of key concepts, and the process of scientific inquiry. Topics include but are not limited to: modeling the atom (nuclear & subatomic), understanding properties of mater at the bulk scale, chemical bonding, understanding and modeling chemical reactions, moles, stoichiometry, properties of solutions and concentration/dilution, thermodynamics, reaction rate, dynamic equilibria, acid/base, reduction/oxidation (redox) and gasses. We focus a lot in this class on the chemical effects of human activity on the environment and using chemistry to offer viable solutions.   This class culminates in an engineering applications unit on bioplastics and their effects on the environment. Class meets weekly for 2 hours and includes keeping a scientific journal. 

Pre- or Co-requisite:  Algebra 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


THURSDAY     9:00am – 11:15am

Honors Chemistry 10-12th $500

THURSDAY     9:00am – 12:00pm

Honors Chemistry is a more challenging A-G level class that explores chemical phenomena with an emphasis on preparing the student for future study in STEM classes and SAT II subject material. Through lectures, class discussions, small group activities, homework, labs and class lab challenges, students will explore chemical concepts as they apply to the world around them. Emphasis will be on disciplinary core concepts, both qualitative and quantitative laboratory inquiry, mathematical modeling of key concepts, and the process of scientific inquiry. Topics include but are not limited to: modeling the atom (nuclear & subatomic), understanding properties of mater at the bulk scale, chemical bonding, understanding and modeling chemical reactions, molecular & empirical formulas, % composition, moles, stoichiometry, properties of solutions and concentration/dilution, thermodynamics, reaction rate, dynamic equilibria, acid/base, reduction/oxidation (redox) and gas laws. We focus a lot in this class on the chemical effects of human activity on the environment and using chemistry to offer viable solutions.   This class culminates in an engineering applications unit on bioplastics and their effects on the environment. Class meets weekly for 2.75 hrs hours and includes keeping a scientific journal. Honors students are required to do researched lab reports on their experimental work that include mathematical analysis, graphs & charts as well as well-reasoned conclusions supported by their experimental data.  Honors students are held to a higher standard, including the use of appropriate significant figures at all times, and error analysis in all labs that are quantitative.

Pre-requisite: Successful completion of Algebra I with a C or better.


THURSDAY
     9:00am – 12:00pm

Conceptual Chemistry 10-12th $475 NON a-g

THURSDAY     9:00am – 11:15am

Conceptual Chemistry is a year-long course designed to engage students who might not otherwise pursue a future in science and capture their attention using fun weekly wet labs and demonstrations.  Through lectures, class discussions, small group activities, homework, and labs, students will explore chemical concepts as they apply to the world around them. The focus is on disciplinary core concepts, the process of scientific inquiry,  and the application of the study of chemistry to the real world, not mathematical models. Topics include but are not limited to modeling the atom, understanding properties of matter at the bulk scale, chemical bonding, understanding and modeling chemical reactions, moles, basic stoichiometry concepts, properties of solutions, concentration and serial dilution, simple thermodynamics, factors affecting reaction rates, dynamic equilibria, acid/base, gases and a simplified introduction to organic chemistry. This class emphasizes the chemical effects of human activity on the environment and the uses of chemistry to offer viable solutions to real-world problems.  Our year culminates in a student-led engineering applications unit on plastics and bioplastics and their effects on the environment with a poster presentation. Weekly classes include 1-hour lecture and 1.5 hours of lab (plus clean-up time), a comprehensive year-long in-class exam in May,  and keeping a scientific journal.

Pre- or co-requisite: Successful completion of Algebra I with a C or better.
