Physical Science - Virtual



Course description

This full-year course focuses on traditional concepts in chemistry and physics; and encourages exploration of new discoveries in this field of science. The course includes an overview of scientific principles and procedures; and leads students toward a clearer understanding of matter; energy; and the physical universe. As students refine and expand their understanding of physical science; they will apply their knowledge in experiments that require them to ask questions and create hypotheses. Throughout the course; students solve problems; reason abstractly; and learn to think critically.†

Course Objectives†

Throughout the course; you will meet the following goals:†

∑ Examine the periodic table and determine the properties of an element.†
