Mr. Parrish's Syllabus

Course Description

Traditional laboratory experiences provide opportunities to demonstrate how science is constant, historic, probabilistic, and replicable.  Investigations involve collections of relevant evidence, the use of logical reasoning, the application of imagination to devise hypotheses, and evidence to make sense of collected evidence.
