Course Description:

Adaptable to students’ past history with science in middle school, this course will cover key topics typically taught in middle school in the fields of life science, physical science, and earth science. While laying a strong foundation for high school courses by reviewing material key to high school science classes, we will also coach students through the process of developing strong study skills and reasoning skills essential for the study of science. Students will learn to take effective notes, use textbooks effectively, and reinvigorate their passion for science.

Foundations of High School Science Topics:

Life Science

Cell structure, body systems, Mendelian genetics, mutations, asexual vs. sexual reproduction, photosynthesis, interactions of organisms, and adaptation & evolution.

Physical Science

Atoms & molecules, states of matter, thermal energy, forces & motion, electricity & magnetism, potential & kinetic energy, and waves.

Earth Science

The water cycle, weather, oceans & climate, the rock cycle, plate tectonics with earthquakes & volcanoes, renewable resources, the solar system, and gravity.
