Earth in Space
One-year course covering the physical properties of matter. Emphasis is on lab oriented instruction and scientific skills. Topics include issues in science as they pertain to introductory chemistry and physics.
2004-Physical Science Concepts in Action w/ Earth/Space Science (Pearson)
Biology 1-2: Vocabulary intense course with special attention to molecular biology and biochemistry. Addresses photosynthesis and respiration at the biochemical level.
2001 -BSCS Molecular Approach (Gencoe/McGraw Hill)
The conceptual ideas of physics are the focus. The study of mechanics is thoroughly investigated and includes topics such as Newton’s laws, momentum, energy, projectile motion and satellite motion. The particle theory of light and other topics in particle physics is studied.
2002-Conceptual Physics by Hewitt (Prentice Hall)
Stresses the general concepts of chemistry with emphasis upon problem solving and experimentation. Unifying principles are developed, with the laboratory work providing a basis for the development. The experimental theme is used to develop mathematical relationships.
2004-Introductory Chemistry: A Foundation, 5th Edition (Houghton-Mifflin)
Principles of Biology
A laboratory-based science class that addresses both the unity of life (cell dynamics, energy transfers, and genetics) and the diversity of life (evolution, ecology, and plant and animal systems).
1998-Biology: A Community Context (Glencoe)
Students develop an understanding the largest habitat on earth. Students design and build an underwater robot capable of maneuvering to depths of 15 to 20 feet and bringing back images of underwater realms. Students design and carry out field research projects on Bainbridge Island’s vital shorelines.
2003-Marine Biology 5th Edition (Houghton-Mifflin)
Covers the same topics as an introductory college biology course.
2002-Biology 6th Edition by Campbell (Addison/Wesley)
Follows the basic introductory college level chemistry course.
2003-Chemistry 6th Edition (Houghton-Mifflin)
Follows the basic introductory college level physics course.
2004-Physics 6th Edition by Cutnell (Wiley & Sons, Inc)
Introduces students to some of the specialized fields of forensic science. A lab-based course involves the application of scientific methods and technology to the analysis of crime scene evidence.
