Mr. Izzo & Mrs. Ardito
Welcome to our Earth Science Class!
Please click and review the syllabus and safety contract for our course, which outline the curriculum, procedures and expectations!
Students in “Regents Earth Science – The Physical Setting” will discover current ideas and information about planet Earth, including Astronomy, Meteorology, Geology, and Oceanography. We will use techniques such as experimentation, observation, measurement and graphing to explore these topics.
The culmination of this course is the high-school level Regents Exam given in June. This exam includes multiple-choice questions, reading comprehension questions, and constructed-response questions, along with a separate lab performance portion. Students who pass this exam will receive credit towards their high school requirements for science.
