Course Description

The Physical Science course is designed to increase mathmatical and college readiness skills. This co-taught class uses a variety of teaching techniques to build a strong math and science foundation so the students can have more success in subsequent science classes i.e. Advanced Chemistry. The course begins the first semester investigating chemistry, topics include: unit conversions, states of matter, gas laws, reaction types and reaction balancing. The second semester focuses on physics, topics include: motion, force, energy, and simple machines. This course uses labs, activities and positive attitudes to remove the scary side of science and math.
