Astronomy

Course description: During this course we will discuss topics of general astronomy and the workings of the known universe. By the end of the class students will have gained knowledge of basic astronomy terms and its history, the constellations, the types of telescopes used, the planets and our solar system, the birth and evolution of stars, galaxies, and topics in cosmology. This class is a basic algebra-based astronomy class.

Advanced Biology

Advanced Biology is an intensive course designed to be the equivalent of an introductory biology course taken in college. The emphasis is on developing an understanding of biological concepts rather than an accumulation of facts. The student should understand and appreciate the science of biology as a process and a personal experience in scientific inquiry that develops their problem solving and critical thinking skills. This course also prepares the high school student to take the AP exam given in May. 

Major themes include:

  1. The Chemistry of Life 
  2. Cells
  3. Cell Energetics
  4. Heredity 
  5. Molecular Genetics
  6. Evolutionary Biology
  7. Diversity of Organisms
  8. Structure and Function of Plants and Animals 
  9. Ecology

Advanced Chemistry

Advanced Chemistry

This course will be taught at a level of Advanced Chemistry. It prepares you to take SAT Chemistry or to take AP Chemistry.  Advanced Chemistry is an elective college course for high school students. It is one of the most difficult courses among all AP courses, second only to AP Physics. Mastering AP Chemistry will make you stand out in college applications, especially those in science and engineering and Pre-Med related majors. If you get 5 or 4 points on the AP exam, you may also be exempted from basic Chemistry course at the university. The course is divided into lectures and exercises. There are homework and corrections every week. The last class is the final exam. This course is suitable for students in grades 8-11 who have taken or are currently taking Honors Chemistry, currently taking AP Chemistry in their school. You must have completed Algebra I before attending the course.  

Course Syllabus:

Atoms, Molecules, and Ions

Stoichiometry

Gases, Liquids, and Solids

Atomic Structure and Properties

Honors Biology

Honors Biology

Honors Biology covers topics typically covered in a high school biology course and prepares students for Advanced Placement Biology. Students learn complex concepts using a dynamic online environment that includes graphics, animations, video, and audio-narration. Students study the structures, functions, and processes of living organisms and their interactions with the environment.
 

Course Description:
Honor Biology is devoted to cover high school biology course and prepare students for 
Advanced Placement Biology. Through a combination of online lectures and virtual laboratory experiences, each student is expected to develop a solid foundation in the core concepts of biology, develop an appreciation of the investigative nature of laboratory experimentation, and hopefully experience the joy and excitement of contemporary biology. Students are expected to develop an understanding of certain core concepts of biology including evolution, cell structure and physiology, information flow, metabolism, cellular reproduction, and Mendelian genetics.
 

Student Learning Outcomes:
1. Students will draw diagrams of how the basic units of matter called atoms interact to produce the myriad of complex macromolecules that imbue living systems with the many and varying properties that constitute the living state. 
2. Students will be able to differentiate between living and non-living objects.
3. Students will utilize the scientific method by conducting specific laboratory exercises and develop critical thinking in seeking answers to their research question.
4. Students will explain how plant cells capture energy from the sun and other light sources and transform the same into chemical energy. They will also explain how that light energy 
transformed to chemical energy is utilized by virtually all eukaryotic organisms to produce the “energy coin” of life, ATP.
5. Students will describe the “central dogma” of biology. They will explain the mechanisms of DNA replication, RNA synthesis, protein synthesis, cell division, and basic Mendelian inheritance.

Major themes include:

  1. Atom and molecule+ Build an atom game
  2. Chemical component of the cell+ cell animation 
  3. Microscope and cells + microscope virtual lab 
  4. Cellular transport –Osmosis/ Diffusion
  5. Enzymes
  6. Energy- Photosynthesis
  7. Energy- Cellular Respiration
  8. Mitosis
  9. Meiosis
  10. Mendelian Genetics 
  11. DNA replication
  12. Natural selection
  13. Evolution +Deep tree activity

Advanced Physics 2, Calculus-based: E&M

AP Physics is high school selective courses equivalent to college level introductory physics course. AP Physics C:EM has very low percentage of 5 in all AP exams. Scoring a 5 in AP Physics C:EM will surely make your college applications stand out. It’s possible to waive the equivalent course (4 credits) in college too, with at least a 4.

Each lesson is divided into lectures and exercises, with homework and corrections every week. The last class is the final exam. This course is suitable for students in grades 9-12 who have not taken physics or are learning physics. The content of the course starts from the basic concepts and goes from basic to the deeper. Mathematics requirements: basic algebra (I is enough but I is better) to know how to solve simple equations, quadratic equations, coordinate systems and trigonometric functions. Calculus knowledge is required also for this course, although technically you don’t have to learn whole AP Calculus.

Topics covered in Advanced Physics 2,Calculus based,  Electricity and Magnetism

  • Electric Forces
  • Electric Field
  • Electric Potential
  • Electric Potential Energy
  • Capacitors
  • Dielectrics
  • Resistor and DC circuit 
  • Magnetism
  • Electromagnetism
