Course titleIntergrated science B
Pre-requisiteIntegrated science A
Integrated Science B provides an introduction to the world of physics. The course starts out by building a foundation of what it means to be scientific by describing the ways scientists think; communicate; and do their jobs. Next; students cover important aspects of motion and force; including the motion of fluids and how motion relates to Newton?s laws. Building up from these fundamentals; students then explore the topics of thermodynamics; energy; work; and machines. The nature and properties of waves are covered next; and then the course ends by examining electricity and magnetism. Throughout the course; students parallel their investigation into the scientific method with a course project that introduces them to the field and processes of engineering. This course uses a multimedia format that includes text; videos; animations; interactive activities; and group discussions. In self-check activities and quizzes; students practice what they learn and correct misconceptions or uncertainties before taking assessments. Students complete a unit exam and deliver a unit project in each unit. Teacher feedback is provided throughout the course.
