In this NGSS-aligned Earth and Space Science course, students build upon science concepts from middle school into more advanced concepts, practice, and cross-cutting themes. This course covers Space Systems, History of Earth, Earth's Systems, Weather and Climate, and Human Sustainability. The course emphasis is on processes that shape the Earth. In particular, students will look at this through the lens of Earth as an ecosystem of systems. Additionally, the course will also focus on the idea that while Earth exists as a singular planet, it is influenced by the broader universe. Finally, the course will introduce students to the idea that engineering and technology concepts are used to design solutions to environmental challenges facing human society.

The SmartFox Algebra 1 is designed to have a seamless, clear course flow while being rigorous enough for UC a-g approval. Our students love this course, and it's changed how they view algebra, and math in general!
