• Course Description:  Physical Science emphasizes the science behind real world applications of motion, forces, energy, measurement, the scientific process, atoms and the periodic table, compounds, chemical reactions, and nuclear science . Hands-on explorations using math and technology are incorporated to gain well-rounded knowledge of physics and chemistry concepts. Students will accumulate data, construct graphs and develop mathematical models to describe the physical world. Lab activities are designed to develop skills in experimental design and data analysis. Students will use experimental design to solve problems discussed in class. 


    Course Goal: The Physical Science curriculum is designed to continue the investigation of the physical sciences begun in earlier grades. The Physical Science course will build a rich knowledge base to provide a foundation for the continued study of science. The investigations should be approached in a qualitative and quantitative manner in keeping with the developing mathematical skills of the students
