This course discusses the basic concepts of nature, species interactions, human impact, energy usage, and pollution. The course will integrate different components of biology, chemistry, and physical science to fully understand and conceptualize the different aspects of environmental science.

This class will meet for live instruction once a week. During class time, students will talk about different related topics and participation in group discussions. After the live meeting, students will work in Canvas on 5-7 weekly assignments. Along the way, students will add assignments, notes, and diagrams to their science spiral notebook. 

Goals:

1. Understanding that science is a process. Science is a method of learning more about the world. Science constantly changes the way we understand the world.

2. Energy conversions underlie all ecological processes. Energy cannot be created; it must come from somewhere. As energy flows through systems, at each step more of it becomes unusable.

3. The Earth itself is one interconnected system. Natural systems change over time and space. Biogeochemical systems vary in ability to recover from disturbances.

4. Humans alter natural systems. Humans have had an impact on the environment for millions of years. Technology and population growth have enabled humans to increase both the rate and scale of their impact on the environment.

5. Environmental problems have a cultural and social context. Understanding the role of cultural, social and economic factors are vital to the development of solutions.

6. Human survival depends on developing practices that will achieve sustainable systems. A suitable combination of conservation and development is required. Management of common resources are essential

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.

Your students will enjoy this class!

Mrs. Collins is extremely organized and communicates well. The class is set up so that the student can work independently and any needed supplies are communicated in advance. Zoom classes are interactive and hold my child’s interest, and she looks forward to them every week. As an aside, we had to miss some because of medical issues that came up and Mrs. Collins was very accommodating, and my child was able to keep up and not get behind which was greatly appreciated. OTA is also very responsive and makes the signup process seamless. Our first experience with OTA is a great one!

Dynamic Anatomy!

Mrs. Collins is a fantastic teacher who is able to reach each of her students and keep the class interactive. My daughter has enjoyed all the labs that she can complete on her own as a HS junior. The dissections are her favorite part, but I think more than anything it’s the variety in assignments that keeps her engaged and looking forward to each class. Mrs. Collins is easy for the students to talk to and is very responsive to emails. If you have a student looking for a science class and teacher that breaks the mold and teaches in an intuitive way, you should sign up! No regrets!
