From Isotopes to Subatomic Particles, this course encompasses many aspects of science to increase your skill set in the study of matter. Introduction to Chemistry explores the constant physical and chemical changes that continually affect the environment. Basic comprehension of concepts such as Elements and Atomic Mass are introduced and mastered in this course. Once a skillful foundation of knowledge is attained, more advanced units such as Polar and Non polar Molecules and Unstable Isotopes are explored and examined. With a complex area of study, introductory knowledge such as Atomic Number is needed for a more efficient learning process as a skill set expands. This course helps you gain a broad yet nuanced comprehension of a wide range of concepts, ideas and applications in Introduction to Chemistry.
Beyond earth is another world of planets and stars. Whether you are picking out constellations in the sky or marking your calendar for the next eclipse, space is a fascinating topic. Space covers concepts like solar system formation, stars, *galaxies 6453, and asteroids. Come and explore the final frontier!
How are you different from an oak tree or a shark? Science helps us categorize all of the living things on earth. Kingdoms are the most basic branch of categories. In basic science, the kingdoms are divided into plants, animals, and microbes. Kingdoms covers the difference between a human and a moss by describing the methods that are used to classify different organisms.
Future scientists take note: science requires skills in reading graphs and using the metric system. Still shakey on these new skills? No worries! Science Basics will help you build a foundation for understanding all scientific concepts.
Our Basic Science department integrate many areas of science to create a comprehensive topic that will be sure elevate your knowledge of the History of the Earth. This course will delve into the origins, transformation and future of our planet. By exploring the earth's ever-changing evolution over 4.6 billion years, you will identify the classification of different eras and ages. Being proficient in areas such as distinguishing between the Paleozoic Era and the Mesozoic Era is the mission of this topic. The History of the Earth is rich in details which are discovered even today. Fossils communicate the story of environment and forms of life. The discovery of organic remains from a previous time articulates events such as Glaciation and the evolution of structure on the planet. With the mastery of evidence and facts, you will learn to analyze and identify the chronological order of life forms such those existing in the Archean Age and Proterozoic Age. Life and planetary structure come together in History of the Earth to intensify the study of living things and their environment.
How does a scientist go about Predicting the Inheritance of Traits with Genes? In other words, experts in the field of Basic Science are beginning to know who we are before we are born due to the knowledge involving DNA and Genetics. In the Sciences department, Cells and Genetics offer a solid foundation starting with Cell Introduction and offering essential information about living things before they even exist! At the base of all plants and animals are tiny cells and genes. Cells and Genetics decodes the mystery of how all the cells come together to form a living form made of cells.
Throughout millions of years, earth's organisms have changed and adapted along with the environment in order to thrive and survive. The process of Evolution has produced a diverse world filled with complex Relationships Between Organisms. Why does a lion have sharp teeth and is known as a predator? Why is a gazelle buit for speed to escape? Answers to these Basic Science questions are found in Organisms: Adaptations to Environment and Speciation and Natural Selection. Evolution takes a look at how living forms survived intense living environments and how life is resiliant with change.
This is the topic as the springboard into the Basic Sciences. What is a cell and why is it important? What do kingdoms and Sciences have in common? In General Introductory Information, you will achieve the basic understanding of Classification Basics of living things. Think of the world of science as a shed containing tools and all the tools are neatly organized into Levels of Organization such as Three Domains/Five Kingdoms/Taxonomy so you are well equipped to use the knowledge obtained in that shed. You will find Common Features of All Forms of Life in here so you can connect the dots between all Living Organisms and Their Environment. Once you begin your exploration, you will find that everything begins and maintains life with cells. Part of this general introductory topic will help you grasp foundational information such as Cells: The Structural and Functional Units of Life. This is where your journey in the Sciences begin to form a solid understanding of the exciting world around you!
From a houseplant to a giant Redwood tree, plants come in all shapes and sizes. Without plants, people would have no air to breathe and no food to eat. Plants are a critical part of life on earth. Not only is all of the energy on earth produced by plants, trees also provide shade and excellent climbing opportunities.
Can you imagine a world without lights, computers, cars or planes? What is the required fuel your body needs in order to move? Energy. Learn what makes innovations come to life by exploring Energy: Machines, Motion and Light. Every living thing needs energy, whether it is kinetic, potential, or requires a precise exchange of it. Learn about Radiation and Energy and discover the light spectrum and its influences on living things. Wavelengths and visible light have a powerful impact on every form of life. Learn what makes the world an active and exciting place in this Basic Science topic!
Ever wonder why hydrogen finds oxygen so attractive? Compounds, Elements and Chemical Reactions provides basic information about Characteristics of Matter and Chemical Reactions. In the world of cells, the push and pull scenario between Compounds and Elements create what we only know as our living environment. Learn about the Characteristics of Elements and what makes them unique and explore the bonds that take place in Characteristics of Chemical Bonds. In Basic Sciences, it is important to determine what kind of push and pull will take place between substances. Come on in and learn which elements are attracted to each other and which elements burn green with envy.
Earth's global ecosystem is called the biosphere. All of the ecosystems on earth, from the flood forests of Bangladesh to the desert of Arizona, form the biosphere. The biosphere reminds us that all organisms on earth are connected and share a single global habitat. Let's take a look at how everything works together!
