College Prep Physical Science is a yearlong, rigorous course, which involves the exploration of matter and energy as they relate to Chemistry and Physics. The first semester covers an overview of Chemistry, including topics such as atomic structure, the organization of the periodic table, different states of matter, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, and solutions. The second semester covers the fundamental areas of Physics, such as forces, motion, work, power, machines, energy, and waves. Students will be taught science concepts, science skills, and technical writing (lab reports) related to these subject areas. The material in this course will be introduced through multiple learning modalities, which include note-taking, hands-on activities, labs, and projects.
This class will be utilizing google classroom where all weekly schedules and at home assignments will be posted.
