Science

Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy and Physiology is the study of the form and function of living organisms. This course will allow students to take a hands-on approach to studying the Human body. Students will have the opportunities to explore the Human body from the cell and it’s components to the entire organism and how it functions. Students will be able to investigate concepts by taking part in laboratory activities individually, in small or large groups, and as an entire class team. Students will have the opportunities to demonstrate mastery of the Arizona State Science Standards and their prior and learned knowledge through various formats, such as, writing, group and individual activities and research projects, and quizzes. In this course students will be challenged and taught the basics of good note taking, laboratory behavior, laboratory report writing skills, and organization skills

Biology

The cultural and educational value of the Sonoran Desert is the key component in providing students with a critical understanding of the biological sciences at Ha:san Preparatory and Leadership School. Our students are entering a period in time when it is vitally important to posses a strong background in the life sciences as they begin to explore the career options that await them. Biology is a fun and interactive area of study that allows students to better conceptualize life and its many functions. Topics to be covered in this class include scientific inquiry, collecting data and communicating results, ecology, cellular biology, genetics, evolution, living organisms, and the human body.

Earth and Space Science

There are two components to this course: Earth Science and Space Science or Astronomy. In the Earth Science component, students will explore the planet Earth; its components, their functions and how it sustains life. Then, students will look toward the stars and learn about the complex, yet important relationship, our solar system has with our planet. Students will be able to investigate concepts by taking part in laboratory activities individually, in small or large groups, and as an entire class team. Students will have the opportunities to demonstrate not only mastery of the Arizona State Science Standards, but their prior and learned knowledge through various formats, such as, writing, group and individual activities and research projects, exams and quizzes. In this course students will be challenged and taught the basics of good note taking, laboratory behavior, laboratory report writing skills, and organization skills.

Chemistry

This course surveys the concepts of general chemistry. Topics include states of matter, atomic structure, periodic table, bonding, nomenclature, chemical reactions, chemical equations, and quantitative relationships. Students will be able to investigate concepts by taking part in laboratory activities individually, in small or large groups, and as an entire class team. Students will have the opportunities to demonstrate not only mastery of the Arizona State Science Standards, but their prior and learned knowledge through various formats, such as, writing, group and individual activities and research projects, exams and quizzes. In this course students will be challenged and taught the basics of good note taking, laboratory behavior, laboratory report writing skills, and organization skills.

Physics

Physics is the science that deals with matter, energy, motion and force. It’s everywhere and in everything we see and do. Through this conceptual physics course, the material may not always be “easy”, but our aim this year is to be able to learn and comprehend the “not-so-easy” material. A scientist’s goal is to understand and explain how the world around them works…this is our goal. Students will be able to investigate concepts by taking part in laboratory activities individually, in small or large groups, and as an entire class team. Students will have the opportunities to demonstrate not only mastery of the Arizona State Science Standards, but their prior and learned knowledge through various formats, such as, writing, group and individual activities and research projects, exams and quizzes. In this course students will be challenged and taught the basics of good note taking, laboratory behavior, laboratory report writing skills, and organization skills.
