The HS Physical Science curriculum provides students with the necessary knowledge and skills to transition from middle school science standards to high school standards. The course is designed to provide students with an overview of the common concepts and strands in the physical sciences including physics and chemistry. These concepts are investigated through observing, collecting, summarizing, analyzing, and presenting the results of scientific investigations and fieldwork designed for students to develop appropriate knowledge and skills in science as inquiry. All students will be provided appropriate differentiated instruction to help them reach maximum potential.
Students are encouraged to attend after school tutorial to get extra help and make up missing work.
Assignments: Students will complete the majority of their daily work in class in their binder or interactive science notebook. Students will also create a running vocabulary list that they can take home to study. Please see below for current vocabulary words.
