Specialized Science 12 – Astronomy explores the universe. It covers topics you hear about in the news, including our solar system and exoplanets, the Sun and neutrinos, stars and stellar evolution, black holes and gravity waves, galaxies and dark matter, The Big Bang and the structure of the universe, and space exploration.
The course focuses on four big ideas:
- Astronomy seeks to explain the origins of the universe and interactions of celestial bodies (Earth Science)
- An object’s motion can be predicted, analyzed and described (physics 11)
- Forces interact within fields and cause linear and circular motion (physics 12)
- Elements and compounds have specific properties (chemistry 11)
Astronomy is designed with a number of hands-on labs and projects to help students connect with the distant universe. Many models are also used to allow students to understand space through everyday life connections.
If you love to experiment with art materials, then this is the course for you!
