Physical Science  2 Semesters, 36 Lessons
The course addresses physical science and related principles in Earth and space sciences. Physical science concepts include the nature of matter and energy; identifiable physical properties of substances; and properties of forces that act on objects. Students learn about forces and motions, structures and properties of atoms, how atoms react with each other to form other substances, and how molecules react with each other or other atoms. Earth and space science topics include processes that move and shape Earth, Earth's interaction with the solar system, and gravitational forces and weather. Students continue to develop a deeper understanding of the processes of scientific inquiry and how these processes use evidence to support conclusions based on logical reasoning. Students investigate ways in which science and technologies combine to meet human needs and solve human problems. Students trace the historical development of scientific theories and ideas, explore scientific theories and develop their scientific literacy to become knowledgeable citizens.

Biology   2 Semesters, 36 Lessons
This course emphasizes the concepts, principles and theories that enable people to understand the living environment. Students study biology concepts such as cells and their structure and function, the genetic and molecular bases of inheritance, biological evolution, and the diversity and interdependence of life. Students explain the Earth's history using geologic evidence, identifying the Earth's resources, and exploring processes that shape the Earth. The flow of energy and the cycling of matter through biological and ecological systems are addressed in the course. Embedded throughout this study are the basic science processes of inquiry, modeling investigations and the nature of science. Students learn to trace the historical development of scientific theories, ideas, ethical guidelines in science, the interdependence of science and technology, and the study of emerging issues to become scientifically literate citizens.

Environmental Science   2 Semesters, 36 Lessons
In this course, students draw on their previous experience and connect Earth, space, life and physical sciences into a coherent study of the environment. Emphasis is placed on the interactions between humans and Earth, ecosystems, biological evolution, populations and diversity. Students also explore matter and energy relationships. The human interactions with science and technology are discussed, as well as how man has modified current ecosystems and natural systems. Students have the opportunity to use basic science processes of inquiry, scientific investigation, and the nature of science to examine past events, current situations, and to develop and revise scientific predictions, ideas or theories.

Integrated Science   1 Semester, 18 Lessons
This is a survey course aligned with the twelfth grade Academic Content Standards. Students learn about cell specialization, biotechnology, DNA, evolutionary theory, equilibrium of systems, electromagnetic radiation, isotopes, radioactive decay, and concepts of forces and motion as applied to large and small objects and energy levels. Integrated with these topics are historical perspectives, the process of inquiry, the nature of science, ethical practices and the use of appropriate technology. Students apply the principles of forces and motion and describe and predict the net effects of forces and motion of objects or systems. Students explore scientific research, scientific literature, and the relationship of science and society.

OGT Science Prep   1 Semester, 18 Lessons
The Ohio Graduation Test prep course will provide a concise review of high school level science to help prepare students for the OGT. The course begins with a diagnostic test, followed by study skills for the OGT. Students will then focus on major concepts, understandings, and skills in the areas of physical science, earth and space science, genetics and heredity, and life science that are included in Ohio’s science curriculum. The course will end with two practice tests. A checklist is included that will help determine which topics have already been mastered and in which topics the student is weak and needs to review more thoroughly. The lessons and tests follow the style and format of the OGT sample test items and OGT Practice Test in science.
***This course requires a $30.00 lab fee.

Introduction To Aviation   1 Semester, 18 Lessons
Introduction to Aviation is a survey course designed to provide a basic overview of the historical, mechanical, and safety aspects of flying.
