About Science

Welcome to Science Department

The Lincoln High School Science Department is utilizing the newly adopted California Next Generation Science Standards and Framework. The new science curriculum was developed with a three dimensional approach to science instruction. Science in the classroom should utilize science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, and cross-cutting concepts. The classroom should have students engaged in DOING science, LEARNING science content , and ORGANIZING information into larger concepts that span across multiple scientific disciplines. In addition to the CaNGSS standards our science department is engaging students in the English and Mathematics Common Core Standards.

Our science pathway is as follows:

9th grade- Biology: The Living Earth
10th grade- Chemistry: Chemistry in the Earth System
11th grade- Physics: Physics in the Universe
