In this Physical Science course the student will acquire an in-depth understanding of chemistry, physics and earth science.  They will explore such topics as atomic structure, chemical bonds, chemical reactions, motion, forces, energy, light, electricity, magnetism, the rock cycle, biochemistry, atmospheric temperature/pressure and many other topics.  There will be much hands-on learning.  This class is an excellent preparation for higher level high school science in the student's upcoming years.

Mastery in this class will be accomplished by:
1.  Classroom discussion of the major concepts in each module
2.  Classroom experiments - this is the best part!
3.  Science Project in the spring 2022
4.  Lab Report mastery - Lab Report to be graded by teacher

(Some colleges will accept this class for high school credit but I suggest you consult with the specific college.)
