Students will compare values from two or more graphs, analyze data in a table or a graph, identify relationships from provided data representations, and use relationships to make a prediction. This accelerated course will include topics in weather analysis, global climate patterns, erosion processes and controls, geological history, and current astrological discussions. The course will prepare students for Physical Science or Chemistry, but may also be taken following Chemistry.
