2019-20High School Course Selection Guide


ADVANCED PLACEMENT PHYSICS 1 ALGEBRA-BASED (11, 12) 1.6 CREDITS


8 PERIODS


Blended learning class - 2 days double lab periods in-class/ 2 days in-class / 1 day 2 periods online learning


AP Physics 1 is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Newtonian mechanics (including rotational motion); work, energy, and power; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits.


Prerequisite: Successful completion of Chemistry 1 and concurrent enrollment in Honors/Accelerated Honors Pre-Calculus or successful Completion of Chemistry 1 and Pre-Calculus.


EARTH SCIENCE CAREER & COLLEGE PREP (11,12) .5 CREDIT/SEMESTER COURSE


the class meets 8 times per week. Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology .


ADVANCED PLACEMENT PHYSICS C: MECHANICS AND ELECTRICITY & MAGNETISM (12) 8 PERIODS


This course is designed to prepare students for the Advanced Placement Physics C examination and satisfies the guidelines of the Advanced Placement Program. Approximately one half of the year is devoted to advanced mechanics concepts, and the remainder to an advanced treatment of electricity and magnetism topics. The use of calculus in problem solving and derivations increases as the course progresses. In order to provide students with a true college-level laboratory program, the class meets 8 times per week.


1.6 CREDITS


The intention of this course is to be an elective course taken concurrently or following the traditional biology, chemistry, and physics route. The curriculum is an exploration of the principles and processes that shape the earth. Topics include the structure of the earth, rocks and minerals, weathering and erosion, historical geology, and geomorphology.


Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology and Chemistry. EARTH & SPACE SCIENCE HONORS (11, 12)


Honors Earth Science examines the continuum of earth, atmosphere and space science. Topics include the forces and processes shaping the earth, atmospheric circulation and weather and the solar system, as well as objects and processes in deep space. Teaching will focus on the scientific principles underlying observed phenomena. Mathematical modeling and extensive use of technology are integral parts of the course.


1 CREDIT Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology and Chemistry.


SPACE SCIENCE CAREER & COLLEGE PREP (11, 12)


The intention of this course is to be an elective course taken concurrently or following the traditional biology, chemistry, and physics route. The Space Science curriculum encompasses the principles and processes that shape our universe. Topics include weather, climate, the origin and composition of the universe, the solar system, stars, and galaxies.


.5 CREDIT/SEMESTER COURSE Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology and Chemistry.


ADVANCED PLACEMENT BIOLOGY (11, 12) 8 PERIODS


Designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester college introductory biology course, the focus of this course is on building an understanding of the major themes in modern biology; (evolution, energy transfer in organisms, diversity of life, relationship of structures and function, and systems regulation and control). In order to provide students with a true college-level laboratory program, the class meets 8 times per week. Chemistry knowledge and skills are required. Students are prepared to take the Biology AP examination near the conclusion of the course.


1.6 CREDITS


ADVANCED PLACEMENT CHEMISTRY (11, 12) 8 PERIODS


This course is designed to satisfy Advanced Placement guidelines and includes all the advanced chemistry topics for the AP examination. The course is for students with a strong commitment to science who are planning to take the Advanced Placement examination in Chemistry. In order to provide students with a true college-level laboratory program,


1.6 CREDITS


Prerequisite: Successful completion or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry. Current enrollment in Honors/Accelerated Honors Pre-Calculus or successful completion of Pre-Calculus.


BRANDYWINE FLOWS HONORS (12) .5 CREDIT/SEMESTER COURSE


14


The intention of this course is to be an elective course taken concurrently or following the traditional biology, chemistry, and physics route. Brandywine Flows is an environmental education course focused on the Brandywine watershed and its influence on our community. Through field trips, hands-on activities, and research, students use math, social science, science, and language arts to learn how the local community functions based on its water resources. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Chemistry 1.


Tere are 6 NEW WCASD science courses that will be offered on a rotating basis. One selection from the areas of biology, chemistry, and physics will be offered each year starting in the 2019-2020 school year. For 2019-2020, the courses are Electronics and Acoustics, Aquatic Ecology and Marine Biology, and Organic Chemistry and Forensics. For 2020- 2021, the courses offered are Termodynamics and Optics, Human Anatomy and Infectious Disease, and Consumer and Green Chemistry. Tese are elective classes for Junior and Senior students.


ELECTRONICS AND ACOUSTICS HONORS (11, 12) 6 PERIODS


Blended learning class - 2 days double lab periods in-class/ 1 day in-class / 1 day online learning


1.2 CREDITS


The goal of this course is to explore the physics of electronics and acoustics. During the electronics portion, students will explore the fundamentals of AC and DC circuits, circuit components, and electromagnetism. During the acoustics portion, students will explore the nature of sound waves and vibration, sound propagation, sound transmission and noise reduction, room acoustics, and the acoustics of musical instruments and the human ear. This course will make extensive use of laboratory experiments, hands-on projects, and student-driven research. Prerequisites: Successful completion of Biology and Chemistry.


AQUATIC ECOLOGY AND MARINE BIOLOGY HONORS (11, 12) 6 PERIODS


Blended learning class - 2 days double lab periods in-class/ 1 day in-class / 1 day online learning


1.2 CREDITS


This course is an interdisciplinary biological and environmental science course that focuses on freshwater and saltwater ecosystems, their influences on our community, and their connection to understanding global aquatic
