Chemistry

$540

with Kayleigh Cantrell

Calendar Next session starts Aug 20, 2019 at 12:30 pm, runs for 17 weeks

This course will be a semester-long comprehensive introduction to high school chemistry. Special attention will be given to fundamentals of scientific reasoning such as scientific models, experimental design, and data interpretation. This course will cover the following topics: structure of the atom, periodic trends, valence shell electron pair repulsion (VSEPR) theory, chemical reactions, stoichiometry, solutions, gases, acids and bases, chemical equilibria, kinetics, and thermodynamics.

Prerequisites: An understanding of algebra 1; prior exposure to physical science and biology is preferred.

Required Textbook: Chemistry: A Molecular Approach

Written by Professor Nivaldo Tro, a Ph.D. chemist from Stanford University, A Molecular Approach is a lengthy volume that covers an extensive array of subjects. The engaging way it simplifies complex topics makes it well worth the investment. It is available as an ebook as well as a paperback.

Please note this class will meet twice a week and will include 68 hours of class time with an instructor. This is a full year of Chemistry with a lab. 

An additional Class Materials Fee of $100 will be charged for lab materials.

Elementary Electronics

$150

with Jennifer Heeth

Calendar Next session starts Sep 3, 2019 at 9 am, runs for 9 weeks

In this 9-week course, 3rd-5th grade students will wield the power of electronics with hands-on projects that break down complex technologies into modular components so they can experiment, build, prototype, and invent! Students will use learn using items such as conductive dough as well as by "hacking" familiar household items.

 

 

Introductory Biology

$625

with Kayleigh Cantrell

Calendar Next session starts Aug 14, 2019 at 10 am, runs for 17 weeks

This course will be a semester-long comprehensive introduction to high school biology. This class provides an overview of basic principles of biological science following the “Biology” textbook available through CK-12. Students will also participate in dissections and other laboratory experiments. Emphasis will be placed on the fundamentals of scientific reasoning, including scientific models, principles of experimental design, and data interpretation. This course will cover the following topics: macromolecules, organelles, and cells; interactions of components in ecosystems; genetics and heredity; taxonomy; natural and artificial selection; and evolutionary biology.

Please note this class will meet twice a week and will include 68 hours of class time with an instructor. This is a full year of Biology with a lab.

The tuition includes a $100 lab materials fee which allows each student to receive their own specimens for dissections.

Middle School Life Science I

$267

with Kayleigh Cantrell

Calendar Next session starts Aug 14, 2019 at 9 am, runs for 17 weeks

This is the first semester of a full year course.

This two-part course will meet for one hour a week for two semesters and is designed to serve as a supplement to a middle school general science or life science course for students in grades 6th - 8th. Although this course will involve some instruction, it will primarily serve as a laboratory experience to supplement at-home studies of course material. Emphasis will be given to note taking, introductory scientific writing, principles of experimentation, and data analysis/interpretation. The two-part course schedule is designed to follow the “Life Science For Middle School” textbook available from CK-12, although it will be appropriate for any course covering the topics found in this text. Course topics will include the following: cells, organelles, and organ systems; biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems; heredity; and natural selection.

This tuition for Middle School Life Science I includes a $50 lab materials fee.
