                  Course Description

    On Level:

     The study of Science in grade 7/8 is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment (7th) and physical science (8th). At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.

    Pre-AP: 

    Seventh and Eighth grade Pre-AP/IB Science is a course designed to prepare students for advanced Science at the high school level, including Pre-AP and Pre-IB courses. The study of science in this course is interdisciplinary in nature; however, much of the content focus is on organisms and the environment (7th) and physical science (8th) at a higher level of rigor. At least 40% of the class involves laboratory and field investigations in which students will be using critical thinking skills to analyze data and solve problems. Students will also be offered the opportunity to participate in Science Fair; an outside of class scientific research project.
