Science

In high school science courses, students focus on interconnected ideas and principles, such as change, diversity and energy. Students develop scientific knowledge through collecting, analyzing and interpreting experimental evidence. In science courses, students make connections among science, technology and society. Students continue to develop a sense of wonder about the natural world.

Program Course Sequence

Program Overview

The senior high science programs help students attain the scientific awareness needed to function as effective members of society. Students focus on learning interconnecting ideas and principles. These themes include change, diversity, energy, equilibrium, matter and systems; the process by which scientific knowledge is developed, including the role of experimental evidence; and the connections among science, technology and society.

All students need to develop a working understanding of science to make informed personal and community decisions. Through the science program students will learn how to gather and interpret scientific evidence about issues of interest to them and to their community. As a result they will begin to appreciate the power and limitations of science.
