Courses - Physical Science

Physical Science is a course that explores the relationship between matter and energy. Students should learn Physical Science through the process of inquiry. Hands-on laboratory investigations, individual studies, and group activities should constitute a major portion of the learning experience. Using available technology, students will investigate the following:

  • Forces and motion,
  • The chemical and physical properties of matter,
  • The ways in which matter and energy interact within the natural world, and the forms and properties of energy.

Embedded within these lessons will be the use of engineering and technology in the world of science. Physical Science provides the knowledge and prerequisite skills, needed for problem solving and decision-making about matters of scientific and technological concern. Physical Science offers a basic foundation for advanced studies in Chemistry and Physics.
