Teacher Name: ___Ms. Leslie Harrison_harrisonl@prsd.ab.caCourse Rationale:Science programs provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to become productive and responsible members of society. The goal of scientific literacy is to develop in students the science-related knowledge, skills and attitudes that they need to solve problems and make decisions and, at the same time, to help students become lifelong learners who maintain their sense of wonder about the world around them. Diverse learning experiences within the science program provide students with opportunities to explore, analyze and appreciate the interrelationships among science, technology, society and the environment and to develop understandings that will affect their personal lives, their careers and their futures. Course General Objectives:Unit A: Investigating Properties of Matter Overview: Students will study the properties of chemicals.They will study how the classification of these chemicals has helped scientist understand all the different chemicals and chemical reactions that occur.Students will discover that chemicals are present in everything around them.Students will also learn how to handle chemicals safely at work, school and home. Unit B: Energy Transfer Technologies Overview:Students will learn about the various ways that energy is transferred, focussing on heat transference. Unit C: From Life to Lifestyle Overview:Students will begin to understand that all organisms, including humans, are made up of cells that need energy to survive. Students will use microscopes to learn about and identify cell structure and function. Human organ systems will be investigated, in order to learn how these systems interact to maintain internal balance. Unit D:Matter and Energy in the Biosphere Overview:Students will discover how the Sun’s energy is captured by plants and converted to chemical energy.They will be able to describe how this energy is converted and passed through the food web.The discovery of population interaction as well as environmental problems created by humans will also be large topics.
