Natural Science

The Natural Science requirements assist students in gaining a practical understanding of the scientific method and applying it in at least four substantial lab experiences in each core science course. In a lab experience, the student will learn how to gather and analyze data, draw conclusions and make inferences.

You must complete two courses from the list below, at least one must be from Group A. NOTE: Core Math must be completed prior to enrolling in most of the Core Natural Sciences.
