This course is a comprehensive honors course that broadens and extends algebraic concepts covered in Algebra 1 and prepares students for advanced-level courses such as pre-calculus and calculus. Students are challenged to work toward a mastery of computational skills, to deepen their conceptual understanding of key ideas and solution strategies, and to extend their knowledge in a variety of problem-solving applications. Course topics include conic sections; functions, relations, and their graphs; quadratic functions; inverse functions; advanced polynomial functions; rational functions; radical functions; exponential and logarithmic functions; and sequences and series.
This laboratory course is designed to acquaint the student with general anatomy and physiology presented through a Christ centered perspective. It will engage students and make them functionally literate in the language and images of the human form. Structure and function of the body's systems will be investigated using microscope investigations, laboratory exercises, and extensive dissections giving the student hands on experience with different tissues and organ systems. Major topics will include histology, organs and organ systems, homeostasis, health, development, injury/pathology, disease diagnosis and treatment, medical imaging, drug action, and a culminating trip to a local university's cadaver lab. Students will complete case study investigations and apply their understanding of the human body.
This course is a comprehensive honors course that combines previous study of algebra, geometry, and functions into a preparatory course for calculus. The course focuses on the mastery of critical skills and exposure to new skills necessary for success in subsequent math courses. The first semester includes linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic, radical, polynomial, and rational functions; systems of equations; and conic sections. The second semester covers trigonometric ratios and functions; inverse trigonometric functions; applications of trigonometry, including vectors and laws of cosine and sine; polar functions and notation; and arithmetic of complex numbers, as well as an introduction to the concept of limit.
AP Biology is an in-depth, project/lab-based course in which students are provided the opportunity to organize and integrate the unifying themes of biology through the design and interpretation of scientific experiments, various research projects and written assignments. Students in this course will acquire knowledge which is not only consistent with individual biological interests, but that consistently builds upon previous learning.
This course is a basic introduction to the discipline of psychology from a Christian perspective. Focus will include behavior and mental processes of humans and animals and the major theorists who have impacted this field of study.
Biology is an introductory course into the study of life and living organisms. Biology introduces students to the foundations of living organisms, their habits, their anatomy and physiology, and their purpose in God's creation. Students are exposed to cells and their processes, heredity, creation, evolution, and intelligent design, as well as different microbes. All of this is done to encourage their knowledge of their personal environment, as well as the wonder of all of God's creations.
This course reviews and introduces students to the use of basic computer skills to gain familiarity with the Windows 2007 environment. Students will also learn effective use of storage devices in connection with word processing and other applications. Students will review and learn basic computer application such as word processing, spreadsheets and presentation software.
