Science Jim has been teaching science exclusively to homeschoolers for over 15 years and he wouldn't have it any other way.  Science Jim has true wonder for the world around him and little makes him happier than sharing that wonder with others.

Academically Oriented

Science Jim's classes are based on the North Carolina State Standards.  Each class is designed to give the homeschool student  content similar to what they would get in any school setting and fully prepare them for high school or college level classes.

Serious Fun

Monday After-noon

High School Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of atoms and molecules and how they interact. This class is designed to give the students a firm understanding of basic chemistry concepts so that they will be well prepared if they wish to take a chemistry or biochemistry class in college. For the first part of the year, the students learn the “language” of chemistry.  First, they will learn how to use the "alphabet" of chemistry: the periodic table. From there they will learn to create “words” with their "alphabet" by understanding how different atoms form molecules and how nomenclature is used to name those molecules. After that, they will finally begin to form sentences, which in chemistry is learning how to read, write, and balance chemical equations. Once we’ve learned the language, we will begin using it as we move on to stoichiometry, acids and bases, gas laws and more. Hands-on activities and labs will be used to reinforce and enhance the concepts as the year goes on.  Click here for syllabus.  Go to Caerus Academy  for more information or to enroll.

Wednes-day Morning

High School Physics

Physics is the study of motion and energy, and in this class we will break up the year into those two major topics. The first half of the year will consist of the study of motion, including such topics as velocity, acceleration, Newton’s Laws, momentum, and more. The second half of the year we will study the more abstract concepts surrounding energy, including potential energy, kinetic energy, waves, resonance, sound, and light. Most classes will have lab work in which the students will put the concepts and the math that we have covered in class to real-world applications.  Click here for the syllabus.
Prerequisites: Students should have a very firm handle on algebra one.  We will be working heavily with formulas and the more familiar a student is with math the better they will do in this class. Contact Science Jim to for more information or to enroll.

Thursday Morning

Middle School Physics

Physics is the fundamental science.  It is key to understanding Chemistry, Biology, Astronomy and many more of the sciences.  Through a series of enjoyable hands-on labs and lectures, the class will be a basic overview of Newton’s Laws, energy, magnetism, electricity and more.  This class will be focused at more of a conceptual level and will be less focused on the math of physics.  Click here for a syllabus.  Contact Science Jim  for more information or to enroll.
