Class Description:

I will emphasize the scientific method, good lab procedures, and organizational skills.  Science 3 Student Text, 4th ed., teaches concepts about Matter, Sound, Animals. Plants, Geology, Weather, and the Solar System.

Students are encouraged to think critically about science and to approach science from a biblical worldview.

Homework:In class, we will do approximately half lecture/discussion and half experiments, investigations, and hands-on activities. Out of class will be mostly reading the chapters and assigned exercises in the workbook, plus occasionaly a small project to do at home.
Evaluation:Grades are made up of class participation, daily work, homework, binder organization, extra credit activities, and chapter quizzes. A Progress Report will also be sent home each semester as well as an end of the year cumulative grade.
