June 17 – July 12, 2024
Calculus topics include an in-depth study of functions: algebraic, trigonometric, exponential, and logarithmic. Students investigate the concepts of limits and continuity. Differential calculus and its applications to curve sketching, maximum and minimum problems, velocity, acceleration, and related rates of change are also explored in depth. Prerequisite: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Precalculus
Biology focuses on the study of life from an evolutionary and sociological perspective. Students will explore selected topics through lecture, experiments, and inquiry based activities. A basic appreciation of biological science is emphasized through real life examples wherever possible. Topics covered may include, but are not restricted to evolution, ecology, genetics, cell structure, and cell processes.
Chemistry focuses on the study of natural processes from a physical and observational perspective. Students explore selected topics through investigation, experimentation, and inquiry-based activities. Chemistry is emphasized through real life examples wherever possible. Topics covered may include, but are not restricted to stoichiometry, periodic properties, reactions in aqueous solutions, nomenclature, solutions, and gasses. Prerequisites: Biology, Alg I
Prerequisites: Honors Physics (“B” or higher) and concurrent enrollment in AP Calculus
Note: Completion of AP Calculus is strongly recommended. Students study a mathematically substantial formulation of Newtonian mechanics (first semester) and electricity and magnetism (second semester), including vector and calculus-based treatment of particle kinematics (motion), energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, systems of particles, oscillators, and Newtonian gravity in the first semester. Topics covered in the second semester include electromagnetic fields, superposition, electrostatics, magnetostatics, induction, electric currents and elementary circuits, Maxwell’s equations in integral form and the Lorentz force law. Students are thoroughly prepared to take both the Mechanics and Electricity and Magnetism sections of the Advanced Placement Physics C examination.
AP Environmental Science
Environmental science is an interdisciplinary science. The goal of the AP Environmental Science course is to provide students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. The AP Environmental Science course will include a strong laboratory and field investigation component. The goal of this component is to complement the classroom portion of the course by allowing students to learn about the environment through firsthand observation. Experiences both in the laboratory and in the field, provide students with important opportunities to test concepts and principles that are introduced in the classroom, explore specific problems with a depth not easily achieved otherwise, and gain an awareness of the importance of confounding variables that exist in the “real world”.

The Writer’s Workshop
The Writer’s Workshop gives student authors the opportunity to hone their craft in a workshop setting. In a workshop environment, students progress at their own pace and receive feedback through individualized teacher conferencing, and by engaging in peer and self-evaluation. Students use group discussion to analyze elements of good writing and then apply these features to their own work. Students will produce one main literary piece and several smaller pieces each quarter. Genres include poetry (narrative and lyrical), short stories, drama, expository, and research-based. Skills include descriptive technique, narrative style, vocabulary, and syntax, as well as adapting writing style to different audiences. Students interested in generating longer works, such as novels, will have the chance to receive feedback during the class.
