High School Science

High School Science

Bridgeway Academy provides a variety of high school science courses for you to choose from, creating the most individualized education for your unique child.

______________________________________

Earth Science

This Earth science course introduces specific areas of study such as astronomy, volcanology, topography, oceanography, meteorology and mineralogy with proofs of the Creation. Students learn about the perfection of God’s design for the universe. Weather science is a fascinating study as a part of this high school curriculum.

Integrated Physics and Chemistry I & II

These combined courses introduce students to physics and chemistry in a nonthreatening way. Students are “walked” chronologically through development of the Periodic Table of the Elements by learning about the men and women who discovered the elements. This highly engaging approach captivates students’ interests and “compels” them to learn about the application of physics and chemistry to daily life. IPC encourages students to assess data through the scientific method of discovery.

Physical Science

Science does not have to be mind-boggling! Our physical science courses present, in clear and understandable language, an introduction to chemistry and physics. After finishing the course, students will have a better understanding of science, and a college-bound student will have a good foundation for more rigorous chemistry and physics courses. The first physical science unit has a pop-out section that includes a Periodic Table of the Elements and rules for solving problems.

Biology

When God created our earth, He filled it with a vast array of living creatures. Biology explores the wonders of that living Creation. Included are studies of birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles, sponges, coelenterates, mollusks, echinoderms, worms, arthropods, plants and microorganisms. A study of the human body includes the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, circulatory, respiratory, digestive and endocrine systems. Genetics and embryology are incorporated into the study of the human reproductive system.

Advanced Biology- Creation Based

When combined with Exploring Creation with Biology, Advanced Biology gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. In other words, these two courses together cover the entire “advanced placement” (AP) curriculum. In order to take this course, the student MUST have completed a first-year Biology course AND a first-year chemistry course. It covers both the anatomy and the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail. Topics covered include: histology: the study of tissues, skin and bones (the integumentary and skeletal systems), the nervous system: neurons and neuroglia, the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system, the endocrine system, the circulatory system, the lymphatic system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the urinary system, and the reproductive system.

AP Biology- Secular

Using Campbell’s AP Biology, this course is designed to prepare students for college level courses and to complete and score highly on the Advanced Placement Biology exam. Students will also view many educational videos produced by MIT and write extensively about biology. This intense course covers many topics including cells, cellular energetics, heredity, diversity of organisms, the structure of plants, evolutionary biology, and much more!

Chemistry

Students are given a solid introduction to the science of chemistry. All units view the material from a Biblical perspective and provide necessary helps for student success. Topics covered include organic and inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, molecular bonding, chemical reactions, gas laws, electrochemistry, nuclear chemistry, balancing of chemical equations, Periodic Table of the Elements, properties of metals, nonmetals and metalloids, chemical equilibrium, thermodynamics, acids and bases, and quantitative and qualitative analysis.

Advanced Chemistry

(Honors and AP Course)

This course is designed to be the second high school chemistry course that a student takes. In order to take this course, then, the student must have already had one year of high school chemistry. When added to that first-year course, this course “fills in the gaps,” giving the student the equivalent of the first year of college chemistry. You might have heard this kind of course called an “advanced placement” or “AP” course. In addition to a first year of chemistry, the student needs to have completed Algebra 2. The course covers detailed descriptions of limiting-reagent stoichiometry, atomic and molecular orbitals, intermolecular forces, solutions, equilibria, acids and bases, redox reactions, nuclear chemistry and organic chemistry.

Advanced Biology–Anatomy

(Honors & AP Course)

This is our advanced biology course. It gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. The objectives for this course include histology, the nervous system, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, endocrine system, circulatory system, lymphatic system, digestive system, respiratory system, urinary system, and the reproductive system.

Physics

The basics of physics are practical, interesting and understandable in this completely self-contained course. The objectives for this course include measurements and mathematics, force and motion, momentum and energy, states of matter, gas laws, heat and kinetic theory, radiation and nuclear energy, electro-chemistry, magnetism and electrical circuits, light and electricity, optics and optical instruments, wave motion and sound.

Honors Physics

This honors physics course is designed for the high school student who has completed algebra and been introduced to the definitions of sine, cosine and tangent. It provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics. Heavily emphasizing vector analysis, this text is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits and magnetism.

 Marine Biology

This course concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats. It provides a survey of members of each biological kingdom that live in marine environments as well as the physiological processes and structures that help them live in such environments. It then discusses how these creatures and their physical surroundings form marine ecosystems such as estuaries and coral reefs.

In order to take this course, high school students must have completed a first-year biology course, preferably Exploring Creation With Biology. The course contains many experiments, some of which require microscope equipment and dissection equipment. This course is also available in half-year format.
