Geology/Astronomy – 2.5 hours – Karen Garza

Geology/Astronomy – Freshman Science alternative – Geology in the Fall & Astronomy in the Spring (pilot program)

9th grade, but available for all high school, life skills oriented – 2.5 hours

Tuesdays, Conroe Campus, 12:30-3:00

 

Pre-Requisites: None

PURCHASE: Items on the Supply List PLUS

Curriculum 

FALL – 1. Geology: The Geology Book – Dr. Morris; 2. Geology by Design – Carl Froede, Jr.; 3. Dinosaurs – Marvels of God’s Design – Dr. Clarey

SPRING – 1. Astronomy: The Stargazer’s Guide to the Night Sky – Dr. Jason Lisle; 2. Taking Back Astronomy – Dr. Jason Lisle.


2018-2019:  This is a brand-new pilot course being offered to freshman as an alternative to starting your high school career with biology.  Any grade of high school is welcome.  The course combines the study of geology with the study of astronomy.  Two subjects that burst open the study of our universe and what makes it up and how it works.  Our framework is our textbooks which are written from a Christian scientists’ viewpoint.   They cover the topics in scientific detail, helping us to understand and learn about the Earth we walk on and what compromises the stars we gaze at.  These topics will allow us as a class to have open discussions about critical topics, such as evolution, young earth versus old earth, and how the universe was created.  Science is a window into who God is and we get to gaze in to see what we can discover and find out how to defend what we believe.  The objective is to wrap up the school year with a field trip to the George Observatory in Brazos Bend State Park. 

 

ACCOUNTABILITY – A high level of accountability is incorporated into the course.  To maintain enrollment, students must follow through on weekly assignments.  A vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.  It begins at the required Student-Parent Orientation

TTC has Back to School Week the week prior to classes starting, however, the time allotted for each class is less than the 2.5 hours slotted for our Orientation, thus we will meet two weeks prior to class starting.

 

This course is set up as a student driven exploration and discovery of geology and astronomy through the lens of the Bible.  There is use of the Internet with some specific sites, for some research, and for Schoology (our platform for our course) used throughout each semester, so students need access to the Internet during the week when accomplishing their school work.  Another vital component is the student’s notebook where all of the course work is filed weekly.  Notebooks are a resource for the course and a part of the course grade each semester.

This will be a new adventure we get to take together.

 

Class size: Min. 5 students, max. 10.

Fees:  Due on the 1st, $50/month for 10 months + $35 lab fee per semester, due July 1st & January 1st.  Payment is late after the 10th; $10 late fee charged.

Payment options: 1) Write 10 post-dated checks to be cashed on the first of the month (July to April with July & Jan. to include the $35 lab fee); 2) Set up bank draft to arrive at the 1st of the month (Remember, include lab fee for July & Jan.);   3) Pay for entire year by semester ($285 = 1st semester + lab fee – dated July 1, plus $285 = 2nd semester + lab fee – dated Dec. 1st). 

NOTE: The first payment must include the Fall lab fee. As we often turn students away once you have reserved your space, there will be no refunds given after July 1.

REGISTRATION: Please fill out the Revelation Science Registration Form & mail with fees (tuition + lab fee).

NOTE:  There is a required Student and Parent Orientation two weeks prior to class beginning.  It is held at the same time the class is scheduled and typically same location & takes the place of the “TTC Back to School” that is the week prior to classes.  The Orientation is to overview what is required for the year & to enable students to get their first assignment plus meet their fellow lab students & set up their notebooks prior to class starting. 

This critical meeting establishes the student’s school year & the parents’ role in it.

Physics Lab - High School, college preparatory – 2.5 hours – Karen Garza

Apologia curriculum Exploring Creation with Physics, 2nd Edition

PURCHASE: Scientific Calculator REQUIRED (Student brings calculator to EACH class); Book set (text + solutions manual) & companion CD; PLUS Items on Supply List

Prerequisites: Algebra I, Geometry; basic Trigonometry functions

2018-2019: The work involved to complete assignments for this course incorporates math with science along with some engineering, so it is designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent.  It is a college and work force preparatory class that is formatted to train students accordingly.  The course is set up to help teach students how to learn and how to study.  The calculations can be challenging, but the labs are engaging and fun, which fosters teamwork and class unity.

ACCOUNTABILITYA higher level of accountability is now incorporated into the course.  To maintain enrollment, students must follow through on weekly assignments. A vital component of the course grade evaluation is following instructions and keeping work organized.  It begins at the required Student-Parent Orientation.  Due to all classes at TTC having Orientation Week the week prior to classes starting, our Orientation is two weeks prior.  Our Orientation time is 2.5 hours and the time slot during Orientation Week is less.

There are 16 modules, which translate into 32 weeks of work to cover in 30 weeks, so students have a reading and work assignment to complete prior to our first class in the Fall AND Spring semester.

Students are given an outline of course work required to complete as school work, which includes the student correcting and grading work that is turned in for review.  Participation in an approved science fair is optional for additional credit.    Another vital component is the student’s notebook where all of the course work is to be filed weekly.  Notebooks are a major grade each semester.  Advice – Do not get behind!

Pertaining to the labs, one experiment is performed off campus at a building with an elevator, location to be announced.  The text provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis; it is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course. It provides the student with a strong background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism.

Class size: Min. 6 students, max. 14.

Fees:  Due on the 1st, $55/month for 10 months + $35 lab fee per semester, due July 1st & January 1st.   Payment is late after the 10th; $10 late fee charged.

Payment options: 1) Write 10 post-dated checks to be cashed on the first of the month (July to April with July & Jan. to include the $35 lab fee); 2) Set up bank draft to arrive at the 1st of the month (Remember, include lab fee for July & Jan.);   3) Pay for entire year by semester ($310 = 1st semester + lab fee – dated July 1, plus $310 = 2nd semester + lab fee – dated Dec. 1st).

NOTE: The first payment must include the Fall lab fee. As we often turn students away once you have reserved your space, there will be no refunds given after July 1.
