Mrs. Collins has been teaching science for 22 years. She loves to provide engaging science labs and lively lectures.
Students will be given a lesson, and then 1-2 further inquiry based assignments will be given. Students are encouraged to log in once a week for the lesson, and then a second time to work on the assignments. On average the student should devote 2 hours a week for the class. Additional monthly projects and research will also be given for more comprehension skills, so additional time will be needed for projects.
