I teach grades 7 – 12 Science Courses. For the 2017-18 school year, I am teaching the following classes:
Life Science 7: This class covers a variety of topics–specifically focusing on an introduction to cells and cellular processes, genetics, plants, and zoology. Students will complete a variety of projects throughout the year. I’m looking forward to a year of exploring creation!
Earth Science 8: In this course, students will learn a lot about our amazing planet and solar system! We will study the relationships between the earth, moon, sun; natural wonders including volcanoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes; oceans, geology, and weather.
Physical Science 9/Physical Science 10: This class serves as an introduction to basic physics and chemistry concepts. At the end of this course, students will have a knowledge of laws of motion, simple machines, forms of energy, and chemistry concepts.
Chemistry 11/12: The goal of this class is to prepare students for a college chemistry class. Topics included are: measurement, atomic structure, the periodic table of elements, bonding, reactions, states of matter, thermodynamics, acids & bases, and organic chemistry. There will also be a number of hands-on labs for students to experience chemistry.
WEBSITE: I am excited to be offering this website, http://www.showme.com/Kristen-Mulnix, as a resource this school year. This is a website where I am able to record video “white-board” tutorials and post them online for students to view. I will attempt to use this as a platform to review difficult homework problems, concepts, and create questions to be discussed in the next class period.
Students will need to create a profile to be able to login and view the various videos that I have made. I would encourage you to allow your student to participate in this resource!
I also teach in rotation (classes offered next school year):
Biology 9/10: is the study of life! In this course, students will study a variety of information spanning the many topics within the vast science of biology. Students will study taxonomy, the chemistry of biology, ecology, organisms from each of the seven kingdoms, and take a close look at the body and its many life-supporting systems. Biology will also be a hands on investigative class with dissections and other labs.
Physics 11/12: is a course expanding on many of the topics studied in physical science class. Students will study both classical and modern physics while using mathematical skills to solve problems related to motion, work and energy, properties of matter, electricity…etc. Students will participate in labs related to the content covered in the lectures.
