Science Department Mission Statement
The mission of the Science Department at J.C. Booth Middle School is to present science as a rational and systematic observation, identification, description, and experimental investigation, of natural phenomena. Application of these principles in the natural sciences to include physics, chemistry, biology, geology, astronomy, and ecology will be emphasized. This covers 6th, 7th, and 8th Grade Sciences.
The Science Department will stress the importance of critical thinking and logical reasoning using various methods of investigation, such as observation, comparison, experimentation, and manipulation of data.
The Science Department is committed to the concept that science has a practical application and has to be understood in a larger cultural context. It is through inquiry that students are able to view science as an interdisciplinary study applicable to society.
