Use of the scientific method is used throughout and objectives are designed to meet all NAD Frameworks guidelines and North Carolina state requirements. Major topics include: measurement, the mole, reactions, bonding, solutions, energy, state of matter, atomic structure.
Pre-requisite: Algebra I
This laboratory-based course includes topics such as: mechanics, vectors, energy, measurement, light, sound, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear physics. Objectives for the course meet all North Carolina state requirements.
Pre-requisite: Algebra II
Advanced Placement Biology
A laboratory-based introductory college level course in the life sciences available to seniors. This course is designed to meet all the College Board requirements for the AP Biology course. Upon successful completion, the student will receive secondary level credit and will be prepared to take a national exam that, if successfully passed, will give the student the opportunity to receive college credit as well. This is the introductory course required by all college and university biology departments toward biology major and is a requirement for all premedical students. It is recommended for students planning any biological or medical-related career.
Pre-requisites: High School level Biology and chemistry with at least a ‘B’ grade in each.
