Syllabus

Lesson Plans

  • Available each day on Google Classroom – contact me for more information/to sign up as a guardian on your student’s Google Classroom account!

Supply List 

  • Notebook (either composition or spiral for Chemistry – for DC Bio, a 5-subject spiral notebook is recommended!)
  • Colored Pencils 
  • Chemistry only – either a pocket folder or three-ring binder to keep up with assignments, Periodic Table, and Formula Chart
  • I like to color code things a lot, so other recommended supplies are highlighters and colored pens (about 5 different colors)
  • You may use the Chromebooks a lot in all of your classes, so headphones that fit into the Chromebook audio jack and a wireless mouse (if you don’t like using the mousepad on the Chromebook) are optional supplies you may want to consider as well!

 

Chemistry Course Description

In Chemistry, students will conduct laboratory investigations, use scientific methods, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students will study a variety of topics that include characteristics of matter, energy transformations during physical and chemical changes; atomic structure; periodic table of elements; behavior of gases; chemical bonding; nuclear fusion and nuclear fission; chemical equations; properties of solutions; acids and bases; and chemical reactions of all types. Students will investigate how Chemistry is an integral part of our daily lives.


College Biology Course Description/Student Learning Outcomes

  1. Apply scientific reasoning to investigate questions, and utilize scientific tools such as microscopes and laboratory equipment to collect and analyze data.

  2. Use critical thinking and scientific problem-solving to make informed decisions in the laboratory.

  3. Communicate effectively the results of scientific investigations.

  4. Distinguish between prokaryotic, eukaryotic, plant and animal cells, and identify major cell structures.

  5. Identify stages of the cell cycle, mitosis (plant and animal), and meiosis.

  6. Interpret results from cell physiology experiments involving movement across membranes, enzymes, photosynthesis, and cellular respiration.

  7. Apply genetic principles to predict the outcome of genetic crosses and statistically analyze results.

  8. Describe karyotyping, pedigrees, and biotechnology and provide an example of the uses of each.

  9. Identify parts of a DNA molecule, and describe replication, transcription, and translation.

  10. Analyze evidence for evolution and natural selection.
