Science


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

Credits: The following Science courses are 5 credits.

Prerequisites:
 50% minimum is required to progress to the next level in a sequence
 see Appendix B for details about transfers between course sequences
