Topics of study include: use of a microscope, cell structure and function, biochemistry, microbiology, classification, human physiology, genetics, evolution, botany and ecology. Laboratory activities reinforce concepts presented and engage students in the practices of scientific inquiry. 10SC - Life Science9th;#10th;#11th;#12th;#1 yearNatural ScienceN/ANo25.0000000000000 Courses List/DispForm.aspx?ID=74904{a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}S32BotanyBotany is the scientific study of plants and their relationship to the environment. In this course students investigate the growth, reproduction, anatomy, morphology, physiology, biochemistry, taxonomy, genetics, and ecology of plants. Laboratory and outdoor experiences complement classroom activities.5SC - Life Science11th;#12th;#1 SemesterNatural ScienceN/ANo5.00000000000000 Courses List/DispForm.aspx?ID=74863{a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}S42AstronomyThis one semester course provides the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding about the solar system, galaxy, and universe in which we live. Students use tools of observation to learn about space and learn how other astronomers past and present have used tools available. Areas of study include: the process of science, including use of the tools used to observe the sky; stellar astronomy and how stars change over time; and planetary astronomy and how interstellar spacecraft are obtaining information about other bodies in the solar system.5SC - Physical Science10th;#11th;#12th;#1 SemesterNatural ScienceN/ANo5.00000000000000 Courses List/DispForm.aspx?ID=75698{a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}V101Medical Anatomy and Physiology (MAP)This course provides students with an understanding of the U.S. health care system, an opportunity to explore entry level occupations in the healthcare field, and post- secondary education opportunities in medicine. In order to prepare students for healthcare occupations and related study, the course covers introductory medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, and the legal, ethical and cultural considerations in healthcare. Students will enjoy opportunities to visit local healthcare facilities, participate in an educational cadaver lab, and earn CPR and first aid certification. Membership in the Student Organization HOSA is an integral part of this program.10SC - Life Science9th;#10th;#11th;#12th;#1 SemesterNatural ScienceHealth Science, Criminal Justice & Public SafetyNo50.0000000000000 Courses List/DispForm.aspx?ID=75699{a1474b88-e943-4771-be13-3b8882c5fdd4}V71Medical InnovationsIn the final course of the PLTW Biomedical Science sequence, students build on the knowledge and skills gained from previous courses to design innovative solutions for the most pressing health challenges of the 21st century. Students address topics ranging from public health and biomedical engineering to clinical medicine and physiology.
