Course Description

Our Physical Science course provides a foundation for understanding how chemistry and physics concepts relate to everyday life and the world around us. Students will focus on a qualitative approach to topics such as the scientific method, states of matter and their behaviors, atomic structure, chemical bonds, energy, waves, light, electricity and magnetism. There is also some quantitative analysis with topics such as chemical reactions, motion, forces and heat. Students will come to an understanding of how many of these topics are interrelated. For example, atomic structure leads to chemical compounds that can undergo chemical reactions or the relationship between electricity and magnetism. Students are given an opportunity to identify core concepts through the reading material and then apply that knowledge in review activities. Comprehension will be assessed through multiple choice exams and a comprehensive short answer final exam.
