The Earth Science course focuses on the principal areas essential to understanding concepts basic to the Earth, its materials, processes, history, and environment in space. Students will learn the nature of science, the universe and the solar system, the developmental cycle of stars, the earth-moon system, space exploration, formation of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks and identification and classification of rocks and minerals, geological divisions of the earth, formation of land forms and basic mountain types, fundamentals of plate tectonics, formation of rivers and water systems, glaciers, hydrologic cycle, physical ceanography, meteorology, including development of hazardous weather, weather mapping, weather systems, frontal development, and satellite imagery, types of soils and erosion, renewable and nonrenewable energy resources Laboratory investigations, which include the use of scientific research, measurement, laboratory technologies, and safety procedures, are an integral part of this course.
You’ll get textbooks, eBooks, and all study materials for one low price of $299. You also get teacher support, unlimited tutoring and access to the online student community for 24/7 assistance.
The Science courses focuses on the principal areas essential to understanding the development of concepts of matter, energy, and forces, and their applications through exploratory investigations and activities. Students will learn the unifying concepts and processes of science, structure of atoms, structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, entropy and conservation of energym interactions of energy and matter, motions and forces, interactions among science, technology, and society. Laboratory investigations, which include the use of scientific research, measurement, laboratory technologies, and safety procedures, are an integral part of this course.
This subject area also focuses on the principal areas essential to understanding composition, properties, and changes associated with matter and their applications. Students will experience the nature of science matter: its classification, structure, and changes, atomic theory, the periodic table bonding, chemical formulas, chemical reactions, and balanced equations stoichiometry, reaction rates and equilibrium, acids and bases, oxidation and reduction, behavior of gases, dynamics of energy, and chemistry of life.
