AP Biology

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
12
Prerequisite: 
Biology
Description:

  This upper-level course in biology is intended for those students seeking advanced placement in college.  It is the equivalent of a college freshman course in general biology.  The course features a biochemical approach to the study of life functions and includes an intense laboratory program which stresses graphing and analysis of data.  At the end of the year students can take the AP Biology examination for a fee ($74.00).  A passing grade can receive college credit if the student's chosen college participates in the AP program (most colleges do).  The higher the score on the test, the more hours of college credit given.

Biology I

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
9 or 10
Prerequisite: 
None
Description:

  A study of the basic processes used during the incorporation of the scientific method, involving fundamental theory, terminology, and hands-on activities.

Biology II

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
10 or 11
Prerequisite: 
Biology I
Description:

  This course is designed to continue where Biology I ended.  Some areas will be taught again in order to establish a base for further instruction.  Students will be introduced to material in an open discussion/lecture form. Class participation will be encouraged.  Topics will be correlated to life situations as much as possible. 

Chemistry 

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
11 or 12
Prerequisite: 
Biology I and II & Algebra I
Description:

  Chemistry is the science of materials, their composition and structure, and the changes they undergo.

Biochemistry

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
9 or 10
Prerequisite: 
None
Description:

  A study of the basic processes used during the incorporation of the scientific method, involving fundamental theory, terminology, and hands-on activities.

Human Physiology

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level: 
10 or 11
Prerequisite: 
Biology I and II
Description:

  A study of the human body, its basic systems, their structures and function.

Honors Chemistry

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level:  11 or 12
Prerequisite:  Biology I and II or Human Physiology and Algebra II

Physics

Semesters:  1 or 2
Grade level:  11 or 12
Prerequisite:  Physics is intended to introduce high school students to the subjects common to a college entry-level basic physics course, including:  classical mechanics, thermodynamics & heat, wave phenomena & optics, and electricity & magnetism.  This is a lab-oriented class that is very mathematics oriented.  Various projects will also be undertaken that will reinforce physics concepts.
