SCIENCE 7A

Science 7A focuses on science concepts from the fields of chemistry, biology, and ecology.

Science 7A begins by exploring the relationship between matter and energy. Next, the course examines chemical reactions. Students will then use their knowledge of matter, energy, and chemical reactions to build on their understanding of cellular respiration and photosynthesis. Finally, students will uncover the world of synthetic materials to see how they are made and how they impact society.

SCIENCE 8B – NGSS Integrated Science

Science 8B focuses on physical science concepts, including topics from physics and space science.

Science 8B begins by exploring the history of science and highlights influential scientists who laid the groundwork for the fields students are about to discover. This course begins with physics—one of the more interactive sciences that can be seen in action in the world. This course explores concepts of velocity and acceleration, then dives into forces and Newton’s laws of motion. The course also explores space, including the solar system, planets, and the Moon.

SCIENCE 8B

Students in this course will focus on physical science concepts, including topics from chemistry and physics.

They will begin by exploring the history of science and highlights influential scientists who laid the groundwork for the fields students are about to discover. Students will explore concepts of velocity and acceleration before diving into forces and Newton’s laws of motion. After that, they will explore chemistry, including the periodic table, acids and bases, and chemical reactions.
