Science & Lab Classes

Secure Forum: All MHS classes have a secure interactive forum to communicate with tutors, parents and classmates. Tutors will use this platform to communicate about classwork and assignments.

Parents and students access the forum by signing into the website using the username & password created on the membership form and clicking on "forum".

Assignments & Supplies: Binders and notebooks will be handed out as needed for organizing course work. Homework is assigned on our interactive course forums. Class supplies required will be posted on the forum throughout the year.

Life Science (3rd - 6th) (Tues & Thurs 2:00 - 2:55 PM) (55 mins)

Stop and smell the roses. Take the hand lens and watch the ant. Observe, draw, and journal. The study of life is all around us. We will look under rocks, in trees, and of course in the mirror to gain a better understanding of the world around us. Through following the scientific method and inquiry based learning students will become familiar with labs as we foster the budding scientist within. Lessons will start with short readings to provide some background knowledge. From there, we will explore and discover with our classmates. Not only will we be learning science, but we will be learning how to work in groups.

Biology (7th - 12th) (Tues & Thurs 9:30 - 10:50 AM) (1 Credit for High School)

This course will consist of a balance of labs and lecture, with homework assigned. Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to Organisms, Cells, Genetics, Anatomy/Physiology, Evolution, Ecology and Classification of Organisms.

In this course, we will follow a curriculum designed to meet the requirements for High School Biology. As we only meet two hours and 40 minutes per week, homework will be assigned to allow students to make the necessary contact hours for full credit. Students will be involved in labs and hear lectures and other activities. The first semester will cover the major organ systems for humans.

Note: This Includes the study of reproductive systems. Spring semester will largely cover dissection and examination of species such as frogs, fish, clams, earthworms. Exact species are subject to change. The remainder of the semester will focus on plant life.
