Science 7: Semester 2

Course Learning Outcomes

There are four main areas that you should master during this course that continue on from the first half of this course:

  1. Explain different systems (digestive, circulatory, and immune) in our bodies and how they work together to make us whole.
  2. Explain the properties and states of matter.
  3. Describe the basic principles of ecology, including basic conservation principles.
  4. Describe the basic spheres of earth science and explain the effects of astronomy systems on Earth.

Required Resources

Reliable access to a computer and internet.

Science 7: Semester 1

Course Learning Outcomes

There are four areas that you should master during this course.

  1. Describe the organization and makeup of living things first on a microscopic, cellular level and then on a macroscopic, familiar level (from cells to humans and things in between).
  2. Identify characteristics that are common to all living things.
  3. Explain the principles of heredity, including Mendelian genetics.
  4. Describe the interactions of living things with each other and their environment.

Required Resources.

Reliable access to a computer and internet.

Math 8: Semester 2

Learning Outcomes

After you have successfully completed this course, you should be able to do the following:

  1. Simplify roots and solve equations with roots; use radicals in the Pythagorean theorem to analyze triangles and the distance between points.
  2. Evaluate the relationship between angles and find the measure of angles formed by a transversal and polygons.
  3. Use different transformations to move figures on a coordinate plane.
  4. Determine if figures are similar or congruent using transformations and informal arguments.
  5. Find the volume and missing measures of cylinders, cones, hemispheres, spheres, and composite figures.
  6. Construct and interpret two-way tables, including their relative frequencies; construct and interpret scatter plots and lines of best fit (trend lines) and then make predictions using the information.

Math 8: Semester 1

Learning Outcomes

After you have successfully completed this course, you should be able to do the following:

  1. Solve diverse types of equations using properties of equality, the distributive property, and like terms; write equations with one variable to represent real-world situations.
  2. Write linear equations given graphs, tables, or points; find the slope and constant rate of change; and determine if a linear equation is proportional.
  3. Write equations and solve systems of equations by using graphing, substitution, elimination, and algebraic methods.
  4. Identify and represent functions; identify the type of function; construct functions in different representations, including graphs, equations, and numeric and verbal forms; identify different parts of a function and compare different functions with each other as they apply in everyday situations; and interpret functions to give them meaning.
  5. Work with exponents, their expressions, and rules of use; identify how exponents can be helpful in expressing very large or small quantities; and perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation.
  6. Use the number system to work with and compare rational and irrational numbers; determine the value of numbers; use rational approximations for irrational numbers; and identify the meaning and properties of roots.
