The Biology course involves the scientific study of living organisms. The course considers the interactions among the vast number of organisms that inhabit planet Earth. It presents the basic form and function of these organisms, from cells to organ systems, from simple viruses to complex humans. It delves into interactions between organisms, and between an organism and its environment. It also looks into how biotechnology is used to improve our health and daily lives.

Students will understand the fundamental concepts of : atomic and molecular structure, chemical bonds, conservation of matter and stoichiometry, gases and their properties, acids and bases, solutions, chemical thermodynamics, reaction rates, chemical equilibrium, organic chemistry and biochemistry, and nuclear processes.

This course discusses the cumulative nature of science and addresses the topics of energy in the earth system, biogeochemical cycles, earth's place in the universe and California geology.

This course discusses the cumulative nature of science and addresses the topics of motion and forces, conservation of energy and momentum, heat and thermodynamics, the structure of matter and the periodic table and waves, sound and light at an introductory and essentially conceptual level.

This course discusses the cumulative nature of science and addresses the topics of cell structure and function, anatomy and physiology, genetics, classification and evolution and ecology.

Physical science program integrates chemistry, physics, Earth science, space science, and applied mathematics and emphasizes the important connections between these subjects.

This course discusses the cumulative nature of science and addresses the topics of motion and forces, conservation of energy and momentum, heat and thermodynamics, the structure of matter and the periodic table and waves, sound and light with added depth including mathematical support.
