In Aquatic Science, students study the interactions of biotic and abiotic components in aquatic environments, including impacts on aquatic systems. Investigations and field work in this course may emphasize fresh water or marine aspects of aquatic science depending primarily upon the natural resources available for study near the school. Students who successfully complete Aquatic Science will acquire knowledge about a variety of aquatic systems, conduct investigations and observations of aquatic environments, work collaboratively with peers, and develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
Students shall be awarded one credit for successful completion of this course. Required prerequisite: one unit of high school Biology. Suggested prerequisite: Chemistry or concurrent enrollment in Chemistry. This course is recommended for students in Grades 10, 11, or 12.
