Spring 2024 Syllabus

Greetings Students and Families! My name is Mr. Purdie and it is my honor and pleasure to be a second-year science teacher at Duplin Early College High School. I teach Honors Chemistry and Honors Biology.

My teaching style is called "Modeling" and I am a member of a group of teachers performing research with North Carolina State University in teaching science using modeling. This is my second of three years participating and submitting data for this and I am grateful that you entrust me with the education of your student.
