Welcome to BCMS, Home of the Cubs!  


Welcome to Mrs. Reddick's STEM Earth's Science and Math Class! We will cover the five main branches of Earth science throughout the year, which include geology (the study of the Earth’s surface), hydrology (the study of water), meteorology (the study of the atmosphere), astronomy (the study of space), and energy. The five branches will be covered in eight units, which are listed below. Each unit will vary in length and prepare your student for the GMAS assessment. We will cover four mathematical domains throughout the year, which include the number system, algebra, geometry, and statistics. The four domains will be covered in ten units, which are also listed below.  Each unit will vary in length and many concepts will be integrated through multiple contents. The syllabus for these contents can be found below.
