Life Science introduces students to the incredible diversity of living organisms. Students begin their studies with the scientific method and the importance of scientific thought and inquiry. Students explore life science through the introduction of plants, cells, bacteria and the animal kingdom.
Earth Science at Tempe Preparatory Academy explores the geographical science of the earth, including geology, oceanography, climatology and astronomy. Students will grasp the central foundations of physical science, atmospheric science and ecology.
Through Biological Science, students explore the natural world of life and living organisms. The scope of study is centered on guided learning and Socratic discussions, introducing students to the complexities of life and scientific inquiry. Students learn the foundations of molecular biology, biochemistry and environmentalism.
Physics introduces students to the natural sciences that involve matter, space and time. Through the study of projectile motion, work, energy and momentum, students learn how to investigate and think critically about the concepts of mechanics.
Physics II embodies the study of the fundamental constituents of electricity, magnetism and harmonic motion. The studies of the universal behaviors of the physical world help students develop analytical logic through mathematics and philosophy.
Students learn organic and biological chemistry through the direct observation and investigations of chemical reactions. Students discuss orbitals, electronic structures of atoms and ions, and chemical bonding. Students will gain an understanding of the basic properties of matter and the world around us.
