Eleventh Grade

Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of science that deals with the study of the composition, structure, and properties of matter and the different states and changes the matter can undergo. In addition to studying matter and its elemental properties, chemical reactions and their causes will also be studied. The scientific laws that govern matter and energy will also be discussed. Lastly, the different types of chemistry will be looked at. While these topics are being discussed, there will be an overall teaching of how chemistry relates to the creation of God and the importance of it.

 

Twelfth Grade

Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy and Physology will cover the basic systems of the human body. Topics covered include:
Histology, the study of tissues
Skin and bones, the integumentary and skeletal systems
Skeletal system histology and movement
Muscle histology and physiology
TheSkeletal Muscle System
The Nervous System, neurons and neuroglia
The Central Nervous System
The Peripheral Nervous System
The Endocrine System
The Circulatory System
The Lymphatic System
The Digestive System
The Respiratory System
The Urinary System
The Reproductive System

 

Physics

Our Physics class uses the ABeka Book Physics and Conceptual Physics by Hewitt. This class "engages students with analogies and imagery from real-world situations to build a strong conceptual understanding of physical principles ranging from classical mechanics to modern physics. With this strong conceptual foundation, students are better equipped to understand the equations and formulas of physics, and to make connections between the concepts of physics and their everyday world." -- Conceptual Physics
