Integrated Science 3
Integrated Science 3 is a science course designed for high school students as a follow-up science course from Integrated Science 1 and 2. Covering more in depth concepts found in Physics, Astronomy, Earth Science, Chemistry, Biology, Genetics, and Scientific Inquiry and Discovery. Topics included in this study are:
- Explorations in Science and Technology
- Geology and Forces
- Ecology and Interdependence
- Genetics and Reproduction
- Newton's Laws
- Energy and Electromagnetism
- Energy in Chemical Reactions
Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to observe simulations, investigate ideas, and solve problems–both on screen and away from the computer.
The course seeks to help students expand their knowledge and skills so that they may achieve the following goals:
- Gain an understanding of in depth concepts in Earth Science, , Biology, Physics, and Chemistry.
- Make careful observations of the surrounding environment.
- Analyze problems and solutions scientifically.
- Appreciate the impact of science discovery on everyday life and future.
- Use their senses for observation of the world around them.
- Use Scientific Measurements and Tools Accurately.
- Graph Scientific Data
- Research and Understand Bioethics and Science Technology
- Understand the Gravitational relationships in the universe
- Understand how Geology and Conditions Affect Weather and Populations
- Understand how Organisms interact with one another and their environment
- Identify Patterns in Evolution
- Identify how Science advances have affected Genetic Technology
- Demonstrate Newton's Laws
- Compare and Contrast Work and Power
- Model how energy is transferred in Chemical Reactions
