Science 800

Science 800

Science 800 is a basic intermediate course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in the physical universe. This course expands on Science 600 and Science 700, providing a set of basic scientific skills and a broad survey of the major areas of science. Some of the areas covered in Science 800 include the structure and properties of matter, measurement and mathematics of science, geology, oceanography, natural cycles and resources, science today and tomorrow, and astronomy. The curriculum seeks to develop the students' ability to be aware of and participate in scientific inquiry. The units containexperiments and projects to capitalize on the students’ natural curiosity. The students will explore, observe and manipulate everyday objects and materials in their environment. Students at this level should show understanding of interrelationships between organisms and the environment, recognize patterns in systems, and expand their knowledge of cellular dimensions of living systems. Collectively, this should help students develop and build on their subject-matter knowledge base.

  • Our Atomic World: Students will use their main senses for observation of the world around them and describe the atomic structure of different elements.
  • Perceiving Things: Students will explore different quantities and how to measure them and use graphs to display and analyze data.
  • Physical Geology: Students will identify different types of geological changes.
  • Historical Geology: Students will discuss how the layers of the Earth’s crust can show history.
  • Oceanography: Students will describe the different parts of the ocean, both living and non-living.
  • Balance in Nature: Students will discuss the balance in nature regarding the various cycles.
  • Science and Tomorrow: Students will explore the relationship between science and society and its possible effects on the future.
  • The Solar System: Students will explore the solar system and its components.
  • Astronomy:Students will explore celestial bodies and describe how to make distance measurements and make observations of objects in the universe.
