Science

  • Science courses will provide investigative experiences that require careful observations,collection and evaluation of data, and formation of conclusions. Science is not only a body of knowledge but a mindset used to better understand our biological and physical worlds. Regardless of the courses of study taken during four years, all students will practice Science by
    1. Asking questions and defining problems
    2. Developing and using models
    3. Planning and carrying out investigations
    4. Analyzing and interpreting data
    5. Using mathematics and computational thinking
    6. Constructing explanations and designing solutions
    7. Engaging in argument from evidence
    8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information
