Welcome to the home for Mr. Y's Science classes. I hope that
you will find it easy to navigate around so you can use it to fulfill
assignments and other responsibilities. If you have any questions, please
see me in class or e-mail me at david.yotsuda@sarasotacountyschools.net

AP ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE: It is highly recommended that you READ and RESEARCH
as many resources on your computer. Although Environmental Science may sound
very easy to understand and conceptualize, it has VERY BROAD coverage that
includes all aspects of science. This means it will require a lot of time to
read and study prior to the exam in May. Please keep in mind that this is a
college level course that will be very time-demanding. If this is NOT what
you are motivated to do to be successful, then please consider another
elective. Many of you have had me as a middle school science teacher, but
please understand that teaching this course requires a higher level of
standards. My hope is to be able to see a very successful assessment grade
for you at the end of the year.


LIFE SCIENCE: Study of basic biology including kingdoms and the human body. 
Suggested resources include television programming on channels like PBS, 
History, Discovery, Animal Planet, NatGeo, NatGeo Wild. FCAT Science review 
also included so look out for Earth and Physical Science related programs so 
you can apply concepts for all middle school science courses.

EARTH SCIENCE: Study of Earth and Space. Any television programming that 
relates to Earth Science are great resources to help you understand and apply 
concepts in class. PBS, Science Channel, Discovery, History Channel, Weather 
Channel and National Geographic are some suggestions. Of course, parental 
discretion is a priority!
