General Science III is an intermediate course intended to expose students to the designs and patterns in God’s physical universe. This course expands on General Science I and II courses. Some of the areas covered in General Science III include the structure of matter, atomic nuclei and radioactivity, geology, oceanography, astronomy, microbiology, medicine, science today and in the future. Students at this level should show development in their ability and understanding of scientific inquiry. Some of the units contain experiments with Smart Science Labs and projects that seek to develop meaning for the student and to engage the student actively. The continued exposure of science concepts and scientific inquiry will serve to improve the student’s skill and understanding.

This course takes students to the next level of learning about God’s world, space, and natural phenomena that occur when energy, matter, and the elements react. Students will continue their exploration of God’s world, the universe, and scientific principles and laws as they learn with this interactive course. Beginning with the atomic structure and measurement of matter, students will learn about the physical geology of the earth, fossils, absolute time, the biology of the ocean, space exploration, human body systems and health, ecology, and the environment.
