This course lays a foundation for HS chemistry, physics and provides beginning lab experience and procedures. Mastery of basic math conversion skills and pre-algebra skills are required. Students will analyze and interpret the results of experiments, learn how to write lab reports, and use basic laboratory equipment.
The scope of study includes: the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and weather, structure of the earth, the environment, motion, Newton’s laws, gravity, light, and sound. A combination of experiments in the text as well as additional experiments selected by the teacher will promote scientific inquiry skills, critical thinking, and creative communication.
This class has been modified to meet Core 40 HS physical science requirements. This can be taken as a Jr. High class and/or count toward HS credit.
