This course lays a foundation for HS chemistry & physics. It provides beginning lab experience and procedures in the scientific process. Mastery of basic Metric and English conversion math skills and pre-algebra 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 teacher selected experiments selected promotes 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.
