High School Science

A Cooperative Science Agreement allows 11th through 12th grade students enrolled in WWTC career majors to take Anatomy & Physiology or Biology II taught by a Highly Qualified Teacher. The curriculum taught in the classroom and the laboratory meets state and federal Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science. This agreement is approved by the State Board of Education and allows these courses to be transcripted through the student's school to meet high school graduation and Oklahoma's Promise (OHLAP) requirements.

LEARNING ACTIVITIES

Students participate in many hands-on activities and laboratory projects. The experiences that students gain in the laboratory are engaging and fun. These activities will encourage critical thinking and problem solving skills. The curriculum that is instructed is aligned with NCTM standards and objectives. Other learning activities include:

  • Hands-on activities
  • Plant and animal identification
  • Human and animal anatomy & physiology
  • Laboratory dissections
  • Microscopy skills
  • Crime scene investigation tactics
  • Biotechnology
  • Genetics experiments

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

Anatomy & Physiology is a systematic approach to studying the human body and its processes. It is an in-depth study into the regions of the human body and its functions. The course is broken into the different body systems and the functions they perform.

CHEMISTRY

Students explore the fundamental principles of chemistry which characterize the properties of matter and how it reacts. Computer-based and traditional laboratory techniques are used to obtain, organize, and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both qualitative and quantitative procedures. Topics include, but are not limited to, measurement, atomic structure, electron configuration, the periodic table bonding, gas laws, properties of liquids and solids, solutions, stoichiometry, reactions, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, and nuclear chemistry.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

This laboratory-based science class emphasizes the application of scientific concepts to the understanding and solution of environmental problems and solutions. Topics discussed include ethics and policy, earth systems, ecology, conservation, evolution, human population growth, chemical hazards, agriculture, mining, water pollution, air pollution, global climate change, non-renewable energy, renewable energy, and waste management.

COOPERATING PARTNER SCHOOLS

Graham-Dustin, Hanna, Holdenville, Mason, Moss, Okemah, Weleetka, and Wetumka.

Note: In order for a student to participate in the cooperative math agreement, their home high school must be a participating member. Contact your school counselor for assistance.
