• Physical Science 9:

    Physical Science is a year-long laboratory course that covers basic high school physics and chemistry concepts and the nature of science and engineering. These concepts are applied to earth and space science phenomena. Students learn about atomic structure, chemical reactions, types of energy transformations, forces and motion. These concepts are used to investigate changes in earth and space systems over time including geology, meteorology and astronomy. Students use observations, laboratory investigations, and problem solving to analyze and understand the science of everyday phenomena. This laboratory course prepares students for biology and other science electives.

    Topics Covered: 

    • Nature of Science/Engineering
    • Forces and Motion, Energy
    • Work & Power
    • Electricity & Power Production
    • Waves & Astronomy
    • Energy of Earth & Climate Systems
    • Structure of Atom & Periodic Table
