Physical Science
Course Description:
Encompassing the branch of science that studies non-living systems, Physical Science is an exciting course that inspires students to explore key concepts and theories, which explain and model a particular aspect of the behavior of nature. Students enrolled in both semesters of this course will examine the forces that govern the chemical building blocks of our physical world and the composition of matter. Additionally, students will explore the properties that affect motion, forces, and energy on Earth. Building on these concepts, the course also covers the dynamic properties of electricity and magnetism and the effects these phenomena exhibit on the planet. A cumulative study of how each of these concepts elicits reactions across the solar system rounds out this dynamic course.
