AHS 0264E - Earth/Space Science, Part A (Online)

This course focuses on the study of the earth and space with topics ranging from the earth’s soil to the solar system’s makeup. Laboratory investigations that include the use of scientific inquiry, research, measurement, problem solving, laboratory apparatus and technologies, experimental procedures, and safety procedures are an integral part of this course. Laboratory investigations in the high school classroom should help all students develop a growing understanding of the complexity and ambiguity of empirical work, as well as the skills to calibrate and troubleshoot equipment used to make observations. Learners should understand measurement error; and have the skills to aggregate, interpret, and present the resulting data (National Research Council, 2006, p.77; NSTA, 2007). Part A is equivalent to the first semester of this year-long course.

The purpose of this course is to formalize and extend concepts related to Earth and Space Science with an emphasis on laboratory investigations. Part A is equivalent to the first semester of this year-long course.
