Science Courses

At Coulee Christian School, the study of science begins with the basic understanding that God created. These courses explain to the students how God is actively involved in the field of science. Concepts are taught in light of Scriptural truths.

Students are required to complete three (3) credits in Science for graduation.


Physical Science

Length: Full year
Grade: 9-10
Prerequisites: None
Credit: 1.0

Students in Physical Science will learn very basic rules and principles of physics and chemistry without needing any starting knowledge of these categories of science. Concepts of chemistry include: matter, atomic theory and structure, and chemical applications such as reactions, solutions, acids, bases, and salts and organic chemistry. Students will also study the following concepts in physics: energy and momentum, matter in motion, work, machines, and wave and particle motion.

Biology

Length: Full year
Grade: 9-10
Prerequisites: None
Credit: 1.0

Students in Biology will cover general biology studies including: botany, human anatomy and physiology, life science, zoology, cellular and molecular biology, including genetics. This course also be doing several laboratory exercises based upon these topics.

Chemistry

Length: Full year
Grade: 11-12
Prerequisites: None
Credit: 1.0

Students in Chemistry will study the following concepts: matter, atomic theory and structure, and chemical applications such as chemical bonds, reactions, thermodynamics, kinetics, equilibrium, solutions, acids, bases, and salts, and organic chemistry.

Calculators and good algebra skills are a must for this course.

Anatomy and Physiology

Length: Full year
Grade: 11-12
Prerequisites: Biology
Credit: 1.0

Students in Anatomy and Physiology will learn the anatomy of the human body and the physiology or workings of the body systems.

Class requires a substantial amount of reading and memorization.

Physics

Length: Full year
Grade: 11-12
Prerequisites: None
Credit: 1.0

This course is weighted on a 5.00 scale.

Students in Physics will learn the mathematical principles behind such concepts as gravity, acceleration, circular motion, and relativity. Hands-on lab activities allow students to see the concepts on paper as well as in real life.

Calculators and good algebra skills are a must for this course.
