LHS Science Classes

  1. 1. LINKScience: Your path to the world of Science
  2. 2. LINKScience Courses <ul><li>The study of science includes three fields: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Life Sciences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Physical Sciences </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Earth Sciences </li></ul></ul>

  6. 6. Graduation Requirements <ul><li>LPS requires students earn 15 credits (3 semesters) for graduation requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>Most four year colleges require 3 years of science with at least 2 selected from biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. Two classes must include laboratory instruction. </li></ul><ul><li>All LHS science classes except for the basic science classes meet admission requirements for science and laboratory instruction. </li></ul>
  7. 7. 9 th Grade Requirements <ul><li>Starting in the fall of 2006-2007, all Freshmen will be required to take Physical Science and GeoScience. </li></ul><ul><li>Freshmen interested in the advanced science courses will be allowed to take Biology following application and approval from the department chairman. GeoScience is required, in addition to Biology, during 9 th or 10 th grade year. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Scopes of Study <ul><li>A Scope of Study is a plan outlining the courses which will prepare each student for their academic goals. </li></ul><ul><li>The LHS Science department ascribes to 4 different scopes which are defined by either graduation or post-secondary education goals: </li></ul><ul><li>Basic – meeting only LPS graduation requirements </li></ul><ul><li>Introductory – for technical & vocational schools or four-year programs not requiring science. </li></ul><ul><li>Preparatory – for four-year programs requiring some science </li></ul><ul><li>Advanced – for four-year science-intensive programs </li></ul>
  9. 9. Scope and Courses: Basic <ul><li>Students in 11 th or 12 grades that are interested in earning credits for graduation and not planning on any post-secondary education. </li></ul><ul><li>Careers may include: food service, telemarketing, & labor services </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested Courses: Basic Life, Physical and Earth Science </li></ul>
  10. 10. Scope and Courses: Introductory <ul><li>Students interested in some post-secondary education. Preparation for community college, two-year associate program or possibly a four-year non-science program. </li></ul><ul><li>Careers may include: electronics, cosmotology, legal-assistant, mechanics, HVAC, secretary, animal science, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested Courses: Applied Biology or Biology, Physical Science, GeoScience </li></ul>
  11. 11. Scope and Courses: Preparatory <ul><li>Students interested in a four-year post-secondary education with non-science emphasis but requiring science for admissions or as part of a program. </li></ul><ul><li>Careers may include: education, business, architecture, construction management, arts, communications, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested Courses: Applied Chemistry, Applied Physics, Biology, Astronomy, Environmental Studies, Zoology, Botany, Earth Systems, Animal Behavior, Genetics </li></ul>
  12. 12. Scope and Courses: Advanced <ul><li>Students interested in a four year post-secondary education with an emphasis in science, engineering, or medicine. </li></ul><ul><li>Careers may include: medicine, engineering, sciences: chemist, physicist, meterologist, biologist, veterinarian, food scientist, forensic scientist, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Suggested Courses: Diff Biology, Chemistry (Reg, Diff & Adv), Physics (Reg, Diff & Advanced), Microbiology, Genetics, Anatomy/Physiology </li></ul>
