    Hello and welcome to Forensic Science or Environmnental Science. I am Mr. Joe Peny and I will be your instructor for the 2020-2021 academic year.  

    The forensic science course introduces key topics in forensic science, including the application of the scientific process to forensic analysis, procedures and principles of crime scene investigation, physical and trace evidence, and the law and courtroom procedures from the perspective of the forensic scientist. Through classroom instruction, labs, and analysis of fictional and nonfictional crime scenarios, students learn about forensic tools, technical resources, forming and testing hypotheses, proper data collection, and responsible conclusions.
    The environmental science course is a scientific study of the natural world and how it is influenced by people. Major topics include: food, energy, human population, biodiversity and global change. 
    Each chapter's presentation will be located in Google Classroom as well as assignments, readings, and the key to the study guide for the review tests. Chapter practice tests will be active on the Quia website for your studying needs. 
     I hope each of my students will leave the class with a better understanding and an interest in the worlds of science.
