SCIENCE:

Biology – Tutor: Mrs. Shari Kaiser

This course will include labs and lecture. Students will be expected to prepare lab reports and demonstrate their understanding of covered concepts with closed-book tests. Consistent attendance is required. The text and course are taught from a Christian perspective. This course requires a substantial amount of work to be done by the student at home. The student is expected to check and correct his/her own homework. Parents will be expected to oversee completion of homework and at-home tests. The facilitator will present each module’s concepts, provide in-class lab time, grade tests and lab reports and provide progress reports. Late homework is not accepted in this class.

An Honors option is available for this course at no additional cost. Details will be presented on the first day of class or can be requested via email.

This course is a college-prep biology course that provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general biology. Heavily emphasizing the vocabulary of biology, it provides the student with a strong background in the scientific method, the five-kingdom classification scheme, microscopy, biochemistry, cellular biology, molecular and Mendelian genetics, evolution, dissection, and ecosystems. It also provides a complete survey of the five kingdoms in Creation.

The facilitator will present each module’s concepts, provide in-class lab time, grade tests and lab reports and provide progress reports. Late homework is not accepted for this class. This course covers fundamental aspects of chemistry such as the classification of matter, atomic structure, spectroscopy, chemical bonding, molecular geometry, physical change, chemical change, stoichiometry, solutions, ideal gases, acid/base chemistry, reduction/oxidation reactions, thermochemistry, thermodynamics, kinetics, and chemical equilibrium. Weaving together concepts and their mathematical applications, the course teaches students how to think as a chemist so they can analyze the major changes that occur in matter.
