Physical Science 2020-2021

  • Syllabus

    Course Description: 

    Physical Science is an 18 week course designed as a survey course of chemistry and physics. This curriculum includes more abstract concepts such as the conceptualization of the structure of atoms, motion and forces, and the conservation of energy and matter, the action/reaction principle, and wave behavior. Students investigate physical science concepts through experience in laboratories and fieldwork using the processes of inquiry
