Available courses

Pre-A.P. Chemistry is to prepare for high school A.P. Chemistry and/or general college chemistry.  Topics to be studied include atomic structure, periodicity, basic nomenclature, reaction classifications, stoichiometry, intro to thermodynamics, reaction kinetics, acids, and nuclear chemistry.

The main differences between Pre-A.P. Chem and the General Chem courses are the depth of topic study and mathematical manipulations.  You are expected to read, take Cornell notes, and work the problems.

 

The AP Statistics course is equivalent to a one-semester, introductory, non-calculus-based college course in statistics. The course introduces students to the major concepts and tools for collecting, analyzing, and drawing conclusions from data. There are four themes in the AP Statistics course: exploring data, sampling and experimentation, anticipating patterns, and statistical inference.Students use technology, investigations, problem solving, and writing as they build conceptual understanding.

Welcome! This course is designed to help you to increase your score on the ACT, so that you may have many more opportunities open to you than the average high school graduate. In addition, the course will train you in basic financial literacy, job interviewing skills, resumé creation, and other skills necessary for a successful transition into independent adulthood. The course will primarily focus on the following:

 

·To develop and apply enduring skills in reading, English, math, and science.

·To use the enduring skills emphasized in this class to achieve or surpass benchmark scores on the ACT.

This class will require extensive in-class participation and effort.We will learn to apply enduring skills to solve problems in every class.Students will be expected to work individually and in small groups to develop strategies and approaches to solve problems.

Welcome to the Moodle BCHS Physics Site.

This site is a supplement to the class discussions and lectures.  This site contains the text chapters (read and take Cornell notes), and supplemental materials (problem sets, tables, links).

It is your responsibility to check Infinite Campus and this site for missing assignments.

Chemistry is the study of matter/energy and the changes that occur as substances interact. Topics within the course of study include, but are not limited to: atomic theory, nomenclature, stoichiometry, kinetics, reaction rates and mechanisms, acid-base interactions, and nuclear chemistry.

 

Welcome to Mrs. Weatherby's Language Arts class!!!!!

The course is designed to provide a rigorous college classroom environment that invites the students to do the following:

-You will gain knowledge of historical people, events, issues, and other data, and use that knowledge to make inferences and draw conclusions;

-You will interpret maps, graphs, and other devices within a variety of contexts in order to draw conclusions;

-You will learn to assess historical materials--their relevance to a given interpretive problem, reliability, and importance--and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship;

-You will develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in an essay format.

AP Human Geography is an introductory college course in human geography. The AP Human Geography exam is based on the equivalent of one semester of college-level preparation; however this is a full year course at Bourbon County High School. This course correlates to a typical introductory college course, with the purpose being the following:

  •  to introduce you to a systematic study of patterns and processes that have shaped human's understanding, use, and alteration of Earth's surface,
  • to look spatially at the Earth in order to analyze human's organization of space and the environmental consequences of their decisions. ,
  • to look for patterns across the cultural landscape, 
  • to identify trends in order to anticipate future phenomena, and
  • explore different methods and tools geographers use in their science and practice.


The purpose of this course is to develop a solid understanding of chemical concepts and principles and how these concepts are used in practical applications.  Throughout the course, key concepts will be related to real-world situations conceptually, with word problems, and with experimental data. 

This course is designed to be the equivalent of a college freshman biology course.  The content has been set by the College Board and is organized around four “Big Ideas”.  Like all college courses, this course will require a significant commitment of time and effort both in the class and outside of the class.  This is NOT a typical high school course.  To be successful, we will need to integrate and apply a huge amount of information on a daily basis.  We have to move at a rapid pace to cover all of the required AP topics.  It is absolutely essential that you do the work and do not fall behind.

This course has two major goals. 1) To be able to understand and apply enough college level biology to pass the AP Biology test in May.  2) To develop the analytical skills and habits that will help you to be successful in college and the work place.

The best way to succeed is to put forth consistent and regular effort.  Trying to “cram” the information just before the test will result in failure.  All of the assignments are designed to help you understand and apply the critical concepts.  I am available almost every day for extra help.

This is a demanding course.  We will use mathematical concepts and algebraic concepts on a daily basis.  It is essential that you participate and try.  Most students do not immediately understand the concepts.  It is important that you do not give up and keep trying.  You can be successful if you do the work.

It is absolutely critical that you do not fall behind.  The concepts build on each other and it is very difficult to catch up.  We will work through numerous examples and problems sets together as a class to help everyone understand. However, to be successful you will have to put in additional work outside of the classroom.  I am available almost every day for extra help.

This course is organized to be the equivalent of a first year college chemistry course.  This course has two major goals.  1) To prepare you to take and pass the AP Chemistry exam in May.  2) To develop a lab notebook of sufficient quality and sophistication to receive college chemistry lab credit.
