SCI377/SCI378 - Honors Chemistry in the Earth System
2 Semesters 1 Credit Fulfills: Lab Science

This honors alternative course contains the same standards as the Chemistry in the Earth System course while extending on depth of knowledge for some standards and covering others at a faster pace. 
This year-long college-prep course is designed to help students understand the principles of chemistry in the context of Earth science phenomena. Students will use science and engineering practices and crosscutting concepts to investigate chemical processes within Earth systems. Specific topics include structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, and chemical processes in everyday life. Students will also explore conservation of energy and energy transfer. Students will investigate the history of planet earth as well as earth materials and systems, including natural resources, natural hazards, the role of water in Earth’s surface processes, and climate.
