Science for Grades 9-12

Grade 9: Biology

Students will use scientific methods and equipment to conduct laboratory and field investigations using safe, environmentally appropriate, and ethical practices. They will learn about genetics, taxonomy, the significance of various molecules involved in metabolic processes and energy conversions that occur in living organisms, and that biological systems are composed of multiple levels that work together to maintain balance.

Grade 10: Chemistry

Students will use scientific methods and equipment to conduct laboratory and field investigations using safe, environmentally appropriate, and ethical practices. They will learn about chemical and physical properties of matter, the Periodic Table, atomic theory, and understand how to quantify the changes that occur during chemical reactions. They will also learn the principles of ideal gas behavior, kinetic molecular theory, and the conditions that influence the behavior of gases.

Physics

Students will go over examples that offer simple and concise solutions that model how newly introduced equations and units are used. Conceptual examples pose a thought-provoking question and then explain the logical reasoning and physics concepts needed to answer it. Active examples ask students to take an active role in solving the problem by thinking through the logic described on the left and verifying their answers on the right. Physics & You features throughout the book explain the physics behind interesting technologies, the impact of technology on society, and the role of physics in various careers. Technology passages in the discussion explain how various modern technologies make use of the physics concepts just learned. Rich lab explorations and study support that allow students to practice and reinforce essential skills.
