Physical Science Course Description
Physical Science is the study of matter and energy. The course is divided into two major scientific areas, Chemistry and Physics. Chemistry will cover a general introduction to atomic structure, the periodic table of elements, properties of elements and compounds, and chemical reactions. Physics will cover a general introduction to the study of motion, forces, energy, machines, waves, light, electricity, and magnetism. Equally important, you will leave this class with the ability to think critically and effectively as well as have a better understanding for and appreciation of matter and energy.
