Earth Science is a comprehensive study of the Earth—its internal and external structure, its everchanging surface, its various bodies of water, its chemical makeup and its atmosphere and weather. Optional parts of the course also include the history of the Earth and Earth’s unique place in space. (Students must complete one of the optional parts.) Accordingly, Earth Science is a combination of geology, oceanography, meteorology and astronomy.
In this course, students view the Earth as a dynamic system and investigate, among other things, such topics as the movements of land, water and air, rock formation, types of rocks and minerals, and how the Earth is affected by the sun and moon.
There are 7 exams in Earth Science. Online Exams are available.
