Oceanography is a lab based class, with hands on guided inquiry activities in which students will study the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the ocean. Topics include exploration and oceanographic instruments; the chemistry of sea water; ocean dynamics; ocean floor features and formation; waves and tides.
This course is designed to give students a better understanding of the world ocean. Through hands on labs that can be easily done at home, to analyzing real world data students will take an interactive approach to online oceanography.
Using inquiry based labs; student will explore and gain an understanding of ocean chemistry, dynamics, and geologic features. Experimental design, graphing techniques and science based math will be applied in the various lessons.
The teacher will provide reference material, note sheets, online simulations, labs, videos, and project instructions.
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
