(All Courses Above are Included in GPA)
Anatomy and Physiology L3
SC331 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 11-12
- Recommendation of current science teacher AND either: C- or better in Biology L4, OR C or better in Biology L3
This course involves a fascinating exploration of human anatomy and physiology in which students discover how the human body is organized and how it functions. Laboratory investigations include cat dissection and “hands on” physiological studies of the fundamental systems of the body.
Anatomy and Physiology L4
SC341 - 1.0 CREDIT - YEAR LONG - GRADES 11-12
- Recommendation of current science teacher AND either: C+ or better in Biology L4, OR B- or better in Biology L3
This is an accelerated course designed for students considering careers in the allied health professions, biology or biotechnology. Topics include organization of the human body, histology, as well as an in depth investigation of the body’s systems. Laboratory investigations include cat dissection as well as the use of biotechnology instrumentation (i.e. EMG, EEG, EKG and GSR).
Exercise Physiology L3
SC332 - 0.5 CREDITS - SEMESTER LONG - GRADES 11-12
This course will integrate chemistry, physics, human anatomy and physiology, health and nutrition and apply them to the human machine in exercise and sports. Course topics include the energy systems, physiological adaptations to exercise, biomechanics of exercise and sports, sports nutrition, ergogenic aids in sports, common sports related injuries, and fitness testing. This course will appeal to students considering careers in medical field (physical/occupational therapy, nursing, and sports medicine), health and fitness, coaching/sports management or physical education.
SC334 - 0.5 CREDITS - SEMESTER LONG - GRADES 11-12
- Recommendation of current science teacher AND one of the following: successful completion of Biology L4, OR C+ or better in Biology L3, OR B+ or better in Biology L2
The focus of this introductory course is for students to learn how science is used to solve crimes.
SC333 - 0.5 CREDITS - SEMESTER LONG - GRADES 11-12
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of physical oceanography and marine biology. Students will study physical oceanography including tides and marine topography, as well as marine ecosystems and biological adaptations to the marine environment. An oceanographic field trip will be part of this course.
