Welcome to Mr. Cooper’s Classroom!
Welcome to my classroom. My name is Garrett Cooper and this is my 4th year as a biology and chemistry teacher in the district. I look forward to working with you and your child. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Let’s have a great year!
Biology: Students study cellular biology including cell structure and cell growth with emphasis on disease prevention, photosynthesis, respiration processes, cell division, DNA, and protein synthesis, the human body, and related issues including reproduction, diet, and exercise. Also covered are ecology and the environment, natural resources, endangered species, and principles of natural selection. Laboratory skills such as observation, measurement, and technique will be developed. Students who successfully complete this course are required to take an End-of-Course (EOC) exam as specified by the State of Missouri.
Chemistry: Students will study basic chemical concepts including measurement, atomic structure, formula and equations, bonding, solutions, stoichiometry, gas laws, equilibrium, periodicity, acids, and bases. Laboratory skills are also developed.
