To continue the theme of order from ninth grade, in tenth grade students focus on order within scientific systems. Many of the topics discussed in seminars deal with topics related to physics and the systems of understanding which physicists use to explore and explain reality. The four units deal with scientific processes and paradigms, paradigms of space and time, twentieth century changes in theoretical physics, and implications for contemporary and future society.
Seminar Topics Include:
Small group goal-setting conference
Science as an Approach to Solving Problems
Introduction to Dimensionality
The Possibility of the 4th Dimension
Limits and Infinity
Frames of Reference--Relativity
Interstellar Communication and Travel
The Quantum World
Science and Ethics
Students attend seminars during HPE to minimize the amount of make-up work due to seminars. If attending seminars during PE does not work for your student (some students really want to attend PE and would rather not come to seminar than miss PE), please let me know which class would be optimal for him/her to attend seminars.
Due to school events, testing, snow, or other circumstances seminar dates may change. Any changes will appear in the "Announcements" below.
