SCIENCE CLASSES

Chemistry

Terri Hall

Tuesdays & Thursdays

1:00 – 3:15pm

This class presents a concentrated look at the foundational principles of chemistry.  Emphasis is placed on student acquisition of basic knowledge and the logical skills involved with complex problem solving in order to prepare for more specific study of chemistry and other sciences.  Dimensional analysis (the “factor-label method” of problem solving) is used extensively for the purpose of developing student  familiarity and competence with the process.

Marine Biology

Fridays 9:00 – 12:00 noon

Classes begin:
September 1, 2022

This class presents an overview of the physical characteristics of the ocean and a more in-depth look at the biology of marine life.  Emphasis is placed on studying organisms in relation to their natural habitats.  Attention is also given to the relationship between Man and the Ocean with an emphasis on the importance of a healthy ocean to maintaining our habitat worldwide.

Physics

Tuesdays & Thursdays
8:45 – 11:00

Classes begin:
Thursday, September 1, 2022

This course is designed as a college-prep introduction to the foundational basics of Physics.  Physics is the science that undergirds all other sciences.  Students are expected to grasp basic concepts and apply those concepts in solving practical, mathematical problems.  This is a “trig-based” physics.  Learning is supported by the performance of a number of hands-on labs designed to demonstrate the principles being studied in concrete ways.

Physical Science

Annette Maloney

Tuesdays 9:15 – 11:00

Classes begin: 2022

This class presents an overview of the physical sciences from a Creationist’s perspective, using the second edition Apologia Physical Science textbook.

Attention is given to providing students with opportunities to strengthen their study skills and strategies while learning the course content. A challenging hands-on science course, students will enjoy experiments and activities, then write lab reports on their experiences. Students will also have opportunities to give several presentations during second semester and complete a long term project.

Goal: To lay a solid science foundation and prepare students to succeed in further high school level science classes, such as those taught by Terri Hall.
