Physical Science

Physical Science is a science course focused around three main science concepts. Through research and hands-on activities, students learn about the properties and changes of matter, motion and forces, and energy and the transfer of energy. This course includes motion of objects, forces, energy, waves, properties of substances, structure of matter, physical and chemical changes, and chemical reactions. Students use an inquiry approach to identify and solve problems and develop laboratory and critical thinking skills. This course serves as a formal introduction to many of the topics addressed in future chemistry and physics courses.
