DEPARTMENTAL HEADS..



Mathematics and Sciences

Our Philosophy:

   Science education is intended to create scientifically literate citizens who will be able to function in an increasingly technological world. Students will gain an understanding of how science creates new understandings, the limitations of science, and how it applies to their daily lives.

Essential Understandings:

    Science is not about finding the truth. It is about providing the best explanation based upon all current data. New data may require new explanations.There are a few fundamental forces in nature. These forces are responsible for the creation of the stars and planets, changes to the stars and planets, interactions between atoms and molecules, and motion. Life changes over time in response to changes in environment. The structure of matter is responsible for the physical and chemical properties of all substances, including living organisms. Energy is a fundamental concept in science, describing how forces affect motion, how atoms and molecules form chemical bonds, and how cells function.
