Chinese III courses focus on having students express increasingly complex concepts both verbally and in writing while showing some spontaneity. Comprehension goals for students may include attaining more facility and faster understanding when listening to the language spoken at normal rates, being able to paraphrase or summarize written passages, and conversing easily within limited situations.
AP Environmental Science is designed by the College Board to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, identify and analyze environmental problems (both natural and human made), evaluate the relative risks associated with the problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them. Topics covered include science as a process, more »
Designed by the College Board to parallel college-level physics courses that serve as a partial foundation for science or engineering majors, AP Physics C courses primarily focus on 1) mechanics and 2) electricity and magnetism, with approximately equal emphasis on these two areas. AP Physics C courses are more intensive and analytical than AP Physics B courses and require the use of more »
AP Physics B courses are designed by the College Board to parallel college-level physics courses that provide a systematic introduction to the main principles of physics and emphasize problem solving without calculus. Course content includes mechanics, electricity and magnetism, modern physics, waves and optics, and kinetic theory and thermodynamics. This is an Advanced Placement course. An AP exam for the course is more »
Environmental Science examines the mutual relationships between organisms and their environment. In studying the interrelationships among plants, animals, and humans, these courses usually cover the following subjects: photosynthesis, recycling and regeneration, ecosystems, population and growth studies, pollution, and conservation of natural resources. Please note: This course does satisfy the Science graduation requirement, but is not considered a lab science class and colleges/universities may more »
In AP Computer Science A, students learn the advanced Java programming skills needed in preparation for the AP Computer Science exam. Because the designated outcomes for the AP Computer Science exam change yearly, consult the AP web site for more information. Please note: The credit earned for this course will default to Fine/Practical Arts credit but can be changed to math credit if it more »
This course introduces students to foundational programming concepts through the use of increasingly complex games and programs beginning with simple number guessing games and ending in the creation of student’s own “Atari-style” video games. Concepts include variables, decision structures, iterative structures, procedures, graphics, collision detection and object oriented programming concepts. The course is taught using an industry standard fourth generation programming language more »
Lifetime Fitness emphasizes acquiring knowledge and skills regarding lifetime physical fitness; content may include related topics such as nutrition, stress management, and consumer issues. Students may develop and implement a personal fitness plan.
