10th Grade Courses

  • Honors Biology
    • This full-year course covers ecology, biochemistry, cells, homeostasis, energy transformation, cell division, DNA replication & protein synthesis, genetics, and evolution & biodiversity.  Students are expected to actively participate in many types of activities ranging from online webquests to hands-on labs.  This is a fast-paced, in-depth course that will prepare students for AP Biology.
  • Honors Integrated Math 3
    • The content of this course integrates the topics of geometry, functions, statistics and trigonometry.  The focus of Semester 1 is on geometry and introductory trigonometric concepts.  The focus of semester 2 is on circular models, trigonometry, probability, and statistics.  Students will apply these concepts to problem solve a variety of mathematical, scientific and technological situations.  Technology will be emphasized throughout the course for work with graphing, analyzing data and simulating experiments.  Rather than taking a final exam at the end of each semester, this class is broken up into trimesters.  A final exam will be taken after each of the following topics are studied: Geometry, Trigonometry, and Probability/Statistics (this one will be a final project).
  • AP Seminar
    • AP Seminar is a foundational course where students investigate real-world topics of their choosing as well as learn to collect, analyze, and synthesize information from multiple sources.  Students engage in conversations about complex academic and real-world issues from divergent perspectives. AP Seminar is the first of two courses in the AP Capstone™ program.  AP Research is the second course.  If a student earns scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research and on four additional AP Exams of their choosing, they will receive the AP Capstone Diploma™. This signifies outstanding academic achievement and attainment of college-level academic and research skills.  Alternatively, if a student earns scores of 3 or higher in AP Seminar and AP Research only, they will receive the AP Seminar and Research Certificate™.  More information about this course can be found at https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/apcourse/ap-seminar.
