Mr. Chuck Crawford
  • Department Chair

There are two important Science scheduling
  • All students need to
  • 1. successfully complete the state mandated
    graduation requirements for science.
  • 2. pass the Science portion of the Ohio
    Graduation Test (OGT).

Graduation Requirements for Science
  • Three years of science
  • One year of Physical Science
  • One year of Biological Science
  • One year of any other science
  • (Most Jerome students take 4 years of science.)

  • Grade 9
  • All students should take Physical Science in
    Grade 9.

  • Taking Physical Science in Grade 9 does two
    important things
  • 1. fulfills the Physical Science requirement
    for graduation.
  • 2. prepares the students for the 9th grade
    content standards that are assessed on the OGT.

  • Grade 10
  • All students should take Biology in Grade 10.

Taking Biology in Grade 10 does two important
things1. fulfills the Biological Science
requirement for graduation.2. covers additional
science content for the OGT (taken in March of
Grade 10).
Typical Science Sequence Options for Jerome
Students Grades 9 and 10.
In any year students may take more than one
science course at a time.
Grade 11
  • Most students in Grade 11 need to take a third
    science course. Most choose Chemistry.
  • More science (Physics, Systems of the Earth, AP
    science, and IB science)

Grade 12
No science (if appropriate credits
earned) or More science (Physics, Systems of the
Earth, AP science, and IB science)
The science staff will advise your child about
what science courses to take in subsequent years
on Advisement Day.
Science courses
  • Physical Science
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Systems of the Earth
  • AP Biology (2 periods)

further questions please stop by at the science
table in the commons.

9th Grade CourseOptions
Sequence Recommendations
Graduation Requirements 4 years of mathematics
  • Most 4 year Colleges recommend a minimum of
  • Algebra 1
  • Geometry
  • Algebra 2

Typical Mathematics Options for Jerome Students
Grades 9 -12.
All courses are offered at standard or
honors/AP levels.
Honors vs. Standard Course
An honors student is self-motivated, responsible,
and reliable. He/She should be hard-working and
possess good time-management skills. Honors
classes cover more material and are taught at a
faster pace than standard math courses.
Doubling Up
It is possible to take 2 mathematics courses in
the same year
  • Geometry and Algebra 2
  • Pre-Calculus and AP Stats

Teacher Recommendation Only
  • Scientific - for Algebra I and Geometry
  • Graphing - for Algebra II and higher
  • TI 84 is used in most Algebra II
  • TI 83, 85, and 86 are also acceptable models

  • Course selection should be based on successful
    completion of Algebra I and teacher
    recommendation. Subsequent classes will be
    addressed on advisement day. Thank You!
