Biology I
  • Study Skills Suggestions
  • Make flash cards
  • Highlight and/or Rewrite notes
  • Have someone quiz you, even over the phone
  • READ the TEXT!!
  • Come see me before or after school with questions
  • ? REMINDER
  • Be sure to check the Due Dates on the
    chalkboard every MONDAY!!! WRITE down the
    assignments in your planner or notebook. You
    may also use their blank grade chart that was
    given to all classes to help keep track of and
    figure their own grades throughout the year.

  • Course Description Biology is the study of life
    and living organisms. Topics include scientific
    method, cells, how organisms interact with their
    environment, genetics, classification and the
    kingdoms of organisms. Activities include
    experiments and problem solving. Students have
    the opportunity to dissect different animals.
    Biology I students are provided with these and
    more hands on learning experiences for the
    understanding of the key concepts of biology.

Biology II
  • Science Fair
  • A field trip to St. Johns Hospital is in the
    works, coming very soon! (TBA)
  • Science Fair at Seymour will be March 5, after
    school in the library
  • Summit Conference Science Fair is March 7, 2007
    in Conway

  • Course Description Biology is the study of life
    and living organisms. Topics include life, cells,
    how organisms interact with their environment,
    genetics, and classification. Biology II is a
    college preparatory class. Activities include
    experiments, problem solving, and paper writing.
    Students will have the opportunity to dissect a
    fetal pig and a dogfish shark.
  • The concepts of the scientific method are also
    taught providing students with an understanding
    of all of the elements of a science fair. Entry
    in the science fair is required.

Ecology
  • Id like to welcome our MANY new students to
    Ecology and to the Stream Team! Activities will
    be much more fun with 21 students instead of 9!
    I hope to have a fun and rewarding semester!
  • page 1 of 2

9
  • Course Description Ecology is the study of how
    living things, plant and animal, interactive with
    their environment. Students will study
    environmental problems, science and ecological
    principles, and sustaining biodiversity.
    Laboratory activities will be a part of Ecology,
    as well as paper writing. Students will be
    automatic members of the Missouri Stream Team,
    which will involve field trips to the Cedar Gap
    conservation area just outside of town.

Anatomy and Physiology
  • After the science fair projects are completed, we
    will begin muscles.
  • STUDY NIGHTLY!!!
  • Science Fair
  • If you planned on doing your project at home,
    BEGIN NOW!!
  • Science Fair at Seymour will be March 5, after
    school in the library
  • Summit Conference Science Fair is March 7, 2007
    in Conway
  • page 2 of 2

11
  • Course Description Students will study Anatomy
    and Physiology of the human body. Anatomy and
    Physiology is a college preparatory class. The
    concepts of the scientific method are taught
    providing students with an understanding of all
    of the elements of a science fair. A science
    fair project is required. This class will cover
    anatomical terms, tissues, and the integumentary,
    skeletal, muscular, digestive, respiratory,
    circulatory, endocrine, urogenital, and nervous
    systems. A cat dissection is done to help
    investigate and relate the structure to its
    function as it correlates to the human body. A
    field trip is taken to a hospital to expose the
    students to the career opportunities and working
    environments.

Physical Science
  • Study Skills Suggestions
  • Make flash cards
  • Highlight and/or Rewrite notes
  • Have someone quiz you, even over the phone
  • READ the TEXT!!
  • Come see me before or after school with questions

13
  • Course Description Physical Science is a one
    year course that introduces the student to the
    physical and chemical processes of the natural
    world. The course examines how these processes
    occur, interact, and relate to the biosphere.
    Students will be involved in activities that lay
    the foundation for their future studies in the
    sciences.

14
Chemistry
  • Science Fair
  • Research Paper Due Friday, December 15, 2006
  • Materials List also due Dec 15
  • Science Fair at Seymour will be the end of
    February (TBA)
  • Summit Conference Science Fair is March 7, 2007
    in Conway

15
  • Course Description Chemistry is the study of
    matter. Topics include atoms, periodic law,
    bonding, chemical formulas, chemical equations,
    gas laws, solutions, and acids and bases.
    Emphasis is placed on experimenting and problem
    solving. A science fair project is required for
    this class.

16
Physics
  • Science Fair
  • Research Paper Due Friday, December 15, 2006
  • Materials List also due Dec 15
  • Science Fair at Seymour will be the end of
    February (TBA)
  • Summit Conference Science Fair is March 7, 2007
    in Conway

17
  • Course Description The physics class will cover
    the study of matter and forces that affect it.
    Topics include motion, forces, momentum, waves,
    light, electricity, and magnetism.
    Problem-solving skills, critical thinking skills,
    and experiments are emphasized. Knowledge of
    algebra and trigonometry are required. A science
    fair project is required for this class.

18
Science Class Rules
  • Respect (oneself, classmates, teachers/adults)
  • Citizenship (You are an integral part of this
    school community and will act accordingly.)
  • Preparedness (You will be prepared EVERY day for
    classwhich means assignments completed, content
    studied, materials with you like PENCIL, PAPER,
    AND TEXTBOOK)
  • Participation (You will participate
    whole-heartedly in class without disrupting it.)
  • page 1 of 2

19
Science Class Rules Continued
  • Raise your hand to speak during class.
  • In your seat and no talking when the tardy bell
    rings.
  • No food or drink is allowed in a science
    classroom.
  • No personal hygiene in class. (Such as hair
    make-up.)
  • Lab rules will be followed or you will not be
    able to participate that day, losing all points.
