Formerly, it has been the case that students took some Life Science in the Seventh grade, some Physical Science in the Eighth, perhaps no Science in the Ninth, Biology for all in the Tenth, fewer did Chemistry in the Eleventh, and finally, for the intellectually able, Physics in grade Twelve. This sequence of courses made no logical sense, it simply developed as tradition. Some time ago Biology was a pu rely empirical observational study. One classified things, memorized phyla and species, perhaps performed a few dissections and did some more memorizing of in- ternal organs and systems. The fact that no mathematical ability was required probably was the reason for teaching it in grade 10. Chemistry, which required some math, but no Physics, became a luniorfSenior course. Physics, re- quiring the most math, was usually postponed until the Senior year if it was taken at all. Today the material is much different. Chemistry is no longer a catalog of elements and typical reactions. Chem- istry now bases itself in Physics. One needs to know about atoms, electricity and energy. Biology has increasingly become Bio-Chemistry. As more and more is learned about cells and molecules and their relationship to life processes, the study of Biology requires a knowledge of Chemistry and Physics. Thus it is that we have turned our curriculum around in an attempt to be logical and realis- tic. We need to study things in the order of their com- plexity. When building a house, one doesn't begin with the roof. Currently we have our Seventh graders studying Basic Energy Relationships iPhysicsJ. The Eighth grade builds on this foundation its study of the structure of matter lChem- istryb. The new Ninth grade program, ISCS-Ill, builds on the previous courses. lt deals with several topics in Biolo- gy and Earth!Space science. Beginning with the Tenth grade the new approach repeats this cycle again, but for a deeper level of maturity. For the general student who wishes to become scientifically literate, and move on to college or life with the best possible grounding in Sci- ence, the Department recommends that hefshe take Pro- ject Physics. ln the Eleventh grade, the student should study Chemistry, and finally Biology in grade 12. 65
