Science is the underlying theme of this course.  It forms the basis on which class discussion will be centered.  Science includes, and is included in, many facets of everyday life.  In other words, science surrounds us. The subjects taught in these courses will include topics in Earth and Physical Science.


The study of science can serve many purposes.  It can be utilized especially when making decisions.  Science incorporates logic and reason within a framework of methods.  Learning the components of this framework will allow you to ask questions and answer them in a logical fashion.  A firm grasp of science can lead to a fuller understanding of an issue and better ways of addressing that issue.
