There are five subject sets for teachers to choose from:
Introduction to Science
These introductory topics are foundational to the study of science and contribute to the development of scientific literacy. Through the understanding of scientific principles, methods, and inquiry techniques, problems can be solved and new knowledge gained.
Earth and Environmental Sciences
Earth/Environmental Science covers a wide range of topics including the structure and components of the Earth, Meteorology, Astronomy, and Ecology.
Life Science (Biologic Science) spans a vast number of topics and skills starting with the cell, the basic building block of life, and continuing to the discovery of important structures and organelles, then advancing into the development of organ systems. Also included is the organism’s ability to "keep healthy."
Physical Science covers topics in both Chemistry and Physics. Chemistry topics range from atoms and the development of the Periodic Table to chemical reactions. Physics topics range from Newton's Laws of Motion to energy, electricity and magnetism, and waves. An introduction to Nuclear Physics is included.
AP Physics is the first advanced placement course. It provides higher level questioning and builds on the basic fundamentals of Physical Science.
