Physical Science

Physical Science is an introductory course that forms the foundation for concepts in Physics and chemistry. This course will introduce students to major concepts in Physics; linear motion, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism and waves. The second half of the course will introduce students to the concepts in chemistry such as atomic structure, properties of matter, chemical reactions, equilibrium and radioactivity. Mastering the material taught in this class is important to students who want to succeed in the subsequent courses in science. This class will involve lots of hands on experiments and demonstration and students will be involved in several small building projects.
