GRADE 11 CURRICULUM

Humanities III
This course is a study of American History and Government from the early Colonial Period through contemporary events and developments in the United States (1600 C.E. to the present). This course examines major events in United States History building upon the knowledge base World History studied in the previous two years. Each unit focuses on the developments of the American spirit and voice, the democratic process, the challenges and conflicts that arise in a society rooted in individual freedom.

Human Rights Program

The three guiding principles of the Human Rights classes are:
1. The study of history, terminology, and current events; 2. Advocacy, action, and service; 3. Community engagement and support.

Algebra II
Algebra II reintroduces the major themes of algebraic and symbolic reasoning in order to open the door to more complex algebraic analysis. Students will explore the factors and products of polynomial functions, simplify and evaluate rational functions, and learn the applications of irrational and imaginary numbers. Special focus is given to the shape, behavior, and properties of quadratic, logarithmic, and exponential functions. Additional focus areas include Conic Sections, Probability and Data, and Trigonometric Identities. Throughout, curriculum is delivered through abstract analysis, real-world applications, independent practice, and students’ individual passion projects.

Physics 
Physics at MUSE covers all areas required by the California state standards. The fundamentals in MUSE physics include: Newtonian mechanics, projectiles, Atwood machines, momentum, energy conversion, centripetal motion, gravitation, and electricity.  Advanced math skills are developed too because trigonometry is required for several areas. Labs are fun because children’s toys like HOT Wheels, slingshots, and Slinkys are involved.

Climate Crisis and Action
Climate Crisis and Action is a unique science course at MUSE. Humans continue to change our oceans and atmosphere in increasingly negative ways. In the climate crisis class, students will look at science through the lens of the human influence on the oceans, atmosphere, and soil. The core concepts covered in Climate Crisis and Action are: acid/base chemistry, ecology, carrying capacity, cells, mathematical modeling, and biogeochemical cycles.
