Science and Mathematics Teacher
Geometry (1 credit)
This course deals with the understanding and use of relationships among points, lines and figures and the processes of deductive and inductive reasoning. Students will learn to use relationships developed in this course to prove that relationships are true.
Into to Physical Science (1 credit)
Physical Science is a laboratory course that integrates major theories traditionally learned separately in Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Systems Science. Students use scientific investigation and study relationships between science, technology, and society to understand chemistry concepts that include physical and chemical properties of matter, the physical and chemical changes of matter, and the conservation of matter and energy; physics concepts focus on different forms of energy and energy transformations, relationships between force, mass and motion of objects and understanding the major natural forces of gravitational, electrical and magnetism. Students are to meet all benchmarks in Physical Science (P.S.) Content Standards 1, 2, 6, and 7.
The study of gravity with an 'Egg Drop' Competition in freshmen physical science class.
Other subjects addressed include Forces, Speed, Motion, Magnetism, Waves, Light and Chemistry. Science should be an educational experience as well as fun!
