3081 – ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY LAB HON - (Gr 12) 1 CREDIT
This is a senior elective course in which students will take an in-depth look at the structure and function of the various systems of the human body. These systems include cardiovascular, skeletal, digestive, endocrine, muscular and nervous. Students will engage in various activities that will focus on the physiology of various organs including dissections. (Department approval required)
3082 – ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY LAB CP1 - (Gr 12) 1 CREDIT
(Recommended for students in Health Careers, Cosmetology, Early Childhood Education, and Culinary Arts) This is a senior elective course that introduces students to the basic functions of various structures within the human body. Students will study the major organs of the cardiovascular, muscular, skeletal, digestive, endocrine, and nervous systems. Students will engage in various activities that will focus on the physiology of various organs including dissections.
3092 – ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE LAB CP1 - (Gr 10, 11, 12) 1 CREDIT
This is an elective course that will provide students with a greater understanding of the environment in which they live. Students will study the impact humans have on the earth’s ecological systems. Topics to be discussed will include energy transfer, pollution, and global warming. Students will work cooperatively to study and look for solutions to these environmental issues.
3094 - HUMAN BIOLOGY- (Gr 11) 1 CREDIT
This is a junior level course designed to teach students about the biology of the human organism. Topics discussed in this course will include human anatomy and the basic functions of the organ systems, human development, genetics, and molecular cellular processes with relationship to environmental interactions.
3200 - AP COMPUTER SCIENCE – (Gr 11, 12) 1 CREDIT
This course introduces students to computer science with fundamental topics that include problem solving, design strategies and methodologies, organization of data (data structures), approaches to processing data (algorithms), analysis of potential solutions, and the ethical and social implications of computing. The course emphasizes object-oriented and imperative problem solving and design using the Java language. These techniques represent proven approaches for developing solutions that can scale up from small, simple problems to large, complex problems. The AP Computer Science a course curriculum is compatible with many CS1 courses in colleges and universities.
3400 – AP ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE – (Gr 11, 12) 1 CREDIT
The AP Environmental science course follows the curriculum recommended by the College Board and is designed to provide students with scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies so that they can understand the interrelationships of the natural world, identify and analyze environmental problems (both natural and human made), evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving and/or preventing them.
3093 - FORENSIC SCIENCE LAB HON – (Gr 12) 1 CREDIT
This is a course that introduces students to the fundamentals of forensic science. Students will use the disciplines of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Behavioral Sciences and apply them to basic principles of the American Criminal Justice System. Students will learn the techniques involved in crime scene investigation and the significance of the preservation of evidence. This course will focus on the fundamental principles of criminalist methods which include chemical analysis trace evidence (hair, fiber, glass, and paint), principles of serology, toxicology, DNA fingerprinting, ballistics, fingerprint identification, and forensic pathology.
