Earth Science - Instructor: Coach Seymour - This 8th grade course studies composition of our physical world and the systems that govern it. The science curriculum presents an engaging study of scientific philosophies and models, outer space meteorology, geology, and oceanography. (Bob Jones/Space and Earth Science).
Physical Science - Instructor: Dr. Hodgson - This course studies science and the Christian in measurement, properties, and classification of matter along with models of atoms, the periodic table, forces between atoms and chemical reactions. The course finishes with physics in action by energy and momentum and matter in action. (Bob Jones/Physical Science)
Biology - Instructor: Mrs. Wells - A survey of the structure and function of cells and their organelles. Genetics, theory of beginnings, and various phylum. Technique and dissection of preserved organisms, along with the use of microscopes. (Bob Jones/Biology)
Zoology - Prerequisite: Biology - A survey of Ecology, Bacteria, Virus, Protozoa, Fungi, Plants and plant processes, Ectothermic and Endothermic Vertebrates - technique and dissection, labs and field work.
Chemistry - Prerequisite: Physical Science - Instructor: Mrs. Wells - Survey of the periodic table, elements and trends. Identifying types of chemical reactions, structure of compounds, writing and balancing chemical equations, and the use of conversion factors in stoichiometry. Use of laboratory equipment and procedures. (Glencoe/Chemistry)
Honors Chemistry - Instructor: Mrs. Wells - Honors Chemistry provides students with an in-depth introduction to chemistry. Students are introduced to various forms of matter. They learn about the basic components of the atom andelectron orbitals. They will become familiar with the Periodic Table and learn how to use it to predictproperties of specific elements. They will learn about chemical bonding, practice stoichiometry, and learn basic reactions.. Additional lessons have been included in this course to provide students with the more in-depth understanding that they will require for AP Chemistry.
Anatomy - Prerequisites: Chemistry and Biology - Study of the structure and functions of the systems of the human body, including histology and cells. Cat dissection, physiological lab activities and microscopes are utilized to aid in learning. (Glencoe/Human Anatomy)
