Course Description:
This course is focused towards developing a deep body of knowledge about the structures, functions, and changes that occur on Earth and in the Universe, in order to prepare students for taking AP or IB science classes in high school. To accomplish this preparation, students will be expected to maintain a high level of organization and self-sufficiency, and must be completely dedicated to performing work outside of class time. The fundamentals of Earth and space are organized into:a unit that explores the composition of the universe. a unit that investigates how the structures of the physical Earth change over time, a unit that examines the role of water in the systems of the Earth, and a unit that explores the functions of weather systems on the Earth.Proficiency in this course addresses the Wyoming Earth Space Science benchmarks necessary for high school graduation.
