The goal of Science 9 is to provide all students the opportunity to explore the grade specific big ideas in the major branches of science – chemistry, reproduction electricity, and earth/space science- leading to a deep understanding of science concepts, while further developing their communication, thinking, personal and social skills. Students will be able to demonstrate their learning of the big ideas as they develop their own inquiries using the scientific method. Students will make connections with their new learning, personal curiosities and passions and their community (place of learning).
Science for Citizens 11 prepares students for science in the work place and focuses on real-world, practical applications of science.
The course focuses on helping students build skills around three big ideas: scientific processes and knowledge impact our daily lives and decisions; how scientific technology and knowledge is used in the workplace; and an understanding of science that enables us, as citizens, to respond and adapt to change on a local and global level.
The course delivers instruction through videos in which students can made notes. There are assignments, chapter tests and projects in which students will apply their understanding and develop competencies
