The ADNOC Schools is pleased to announce that the commissions of Middle States Accreditation granted accreditation to ADNOC Schools for seven years effective May 1, 2014.
This introductory course will expose students to the basics of Biology. The course focuses on exploring living things at a cellular level. Next, it demonstrates the field of genetics by highlighting the work done by Gregor Mendel and otherscientists . It introduces students to three human body systems and its interrelated structure and function. Students will also study about classification of living things, taxonomy, ecosystems, and the flow of energy in ecosystems. [This course provides students with opportunities to] conduct hands-on activities and practical labs on relevant theories and topics through applying the scientific method.
This course is devoted to master the basic biological principles introduced in the Biology I course. The course is delivered using Problem Based Learning approaches. Throughout the year this course provides an opportunity for students to develop scientific process skills, laboratory techniques, and an understanding of the fundamental principles of living organisms. Students will explore biological science at an advanced level. They will master the cell’s structure and function, genetics and heredity[These topics are not covered in the HS Biology course], diversity of living organisms and their ecological roles, and an introduction to animal and plant[Plant Physiology Unit is covered under the concept of structure and function in living things] structure and function. This course will build on its pre-requisite course, Biology I, skills and knowledge.
This course is the first part of a two year course that covers the syllabus of AP Biology. AP Biology is an introductory college-level biology course. Students cultivate their understanding of biology through inquiry-based investigations as they explore a broad range of biological topics. This course is designed to build on previous knowledge acquired from its pre-requisite course, Biology I. It is highly recommended to complete the Chemistry I course before enrolling in this course.
The AP Biology course is the second year course that sums up the AP syllabus. It completes what Pre-AP Biology has started by balancing the breadth of content coverage with depth of understanding. The course emphasis is on shifting from a traditional “content coverage” model of instruction to one that focuses on enduring, conceptual understandings and the content that supports it. This approach will enable students to spend less time on factual recall and more time on inquiry-based learning of essential concepts, and will help them develop the reasoning skills necessary to engage in the science practices used throughout their study of AP Biology.
This introductory course will expose students to the basics of Chemistry. Students will acquire new theoretical and experimental skills and abilities. Students will learn how to plan, conduct, and analyze scientific experiments by following the classical scientific method. Students will enhance their critical thinking skills and improve their ability to analyze data. This course starts by defining the simplest building unit of matter, the atom, all the way to how do atoms form compounds. The completion of this course will set a solid foundation for advanced courses in the field of chemistry.
This course is a build on the Chemistry principles acquired from its pre-requisite course, Chemistry I. It reiterates the fundamental concepts of chemistry but with more depth and empirical slant. Emphasis is placed on the utilization of mathematical, analytical, data acquisition, and communication skills as well as interdisciplinary approaches to discovery. Concepts and skills are put in practice by a strong emphasis on hands-on laboratory experiences and the integration of other branches of science.
This course is the first part of a two year course that covers the syllabus of AP Chemistry. The AP Chemistry course provides students with a college-level foundation to support future advanced course work in chemistry. Students cultivate their understanding of chemistry through inquiry-based investigations, as they explore various topics in the field of Chemistry. Significant emphasis will be placed on developing the student's ability to solve problems through prediction and analysis.
The AP Chemistry course is the second year course that sums up the AP syllabus. The course is a rigorous math-based course, with a strong laboratory component. It completes what Pre-AP Chemistry has started by balancing the breadth of content coverage with depth of understanding. The course emphasis is on shifting from a traditional “content coverage” model of instruction to one that focuses on enduring, conceptual understandings and the content that supports it. This approach will enable students to spend less time on factual recall and more time on inquiry-based learning of essential concepts, and will help them develop the reasoning skills necessary to engage in the science practices used throughout their study of AP Chemistry.
Environmental Science is a general science elective alternative to 2nd level Biology, Chemistry and/or Physics. The course provides students with the scientific principles, concepts and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships of the natural world, to identify and analyze environmental problems both natural and human-made, to evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and to examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental science is interdisciplinary; it embraces a wide variety of topics from different areas of study. Yet there are several major unifying constructs, or themes, that cut across the many topics included in the study of environmental science.
This introductory course demonstrates various physics concepts validated through experimental work. Students are encouraged to become better observers, collect data, interpret results, report and think critically. The students’ comprehension will be further extended with application of multiple print and technology resources. This course covers the core Physics content and offers a survey of contemporary conceptual foundation and a mathematically-based presentation of Physics.
This course is a build on the Physics principles acquired from its pre-requisite course, Physics I. This course is designed to help students understand and appreciate the inquiry nature of the physical sciences by having them “do science” rather than simply read about science or learn scientific facts. The focus is on science as a way of knowing. Students have both “hands-on” and “minds-on” opportunities to experience the nature of scientific inquiry in the physical sciences. Laboratory work is central to the course.
This course is the first part of a two year course that covers the syllabus of AP Physics. The students’ comprehension will be further strengthened with extensive numerical applications and practical work. The students will learn how to identify the connection between the concrete world and the world of Physics in terms of Mechanics and Electricity.
The AP Physics course is the second year course that sums up the AP syllabus. This is a rigorous and academically challenging course work, which is taught in breadth and depth that provides an excellent first-year college-level calculus-based Physics education. Introductory differential and integral calculus is used throughout the course. The course includes a laboratory component which allows students reinforce their understanding of concepts, gain hands-on experimentation experience, develop their written communication skills, and develop their independent and critical thinking. By the end of the year, students will be prepared to take the AP Physics C Mechanics/Electricity exams.
