This course is recommended for students who have average to above average skills in mathematics and who plan on pursuing a post-secondary education, possibly in a science related field. The Earth as a system is the approach for this course. While studying astronomy, geology, meteorology and oceanography, the lessons investigate the interactions among these components in order to explain Earth’s dynamics, Earth’s evolution, global change and place within the universe. During this class we will study the main units of study suggested by the NGSS. They include: 1.Science Methodology and Basic Principles, 2. Earth's Place in the Universe, 2. Earth Systems, and 4. Earth's Processes and Human Activity. Students who take this course will utilize their mathematics knowledge during activities and exercises. Evaluation is based on tests, quizzes, laboratory work, homework/classwork, class discussion and special assignments.A copy of the Course Overview. This will be adjusted and adapted during the 2020-2021 school year as needed.
