Course Description\nPhysical Science is an interactive and engaging course that covers the sciences of chemistry and physics. The course begins with a unit on the nature of science and a review of measurement and its importance. The course proceeds with the study of chemical principles, exposing students to topics such as the properties of matter, the structure of the atom, the formation of bonds, and the properties of solutions. The course then moves to the science of physics, describing the topics of motion, force, work, and energy. Students apply their knowledge of these topics through problems, explanations, graphs, and virtual lab activities.\n\nCourse Breakdown\n\n The scientific method\n Data analysis\n Pure substances and mixtures\n Chemical and physical properties\n Phase changes\n Gas laws\n Atomic structure\n Electron arrangement\n Chemical bonding\n Chemical reactions\n Formation of solutions\n Acids and bases\n Organic chemicals\n Nuclear chemistry Distance and displacement\n Speed and velocity\n Acceleration\n Projectiles\n Newton's three laws of motion\n Momentum and collisions\n Work and power\n Machines and their advantages\n Kinetic and potential energy\n Thermodynamics\n Wave motion\n Electrical circuits\n\nCourse Goals\n Explore the foundations of science, including the scientific methods and data analysis.\n Compare and contrast physical and chemical processes, including phase transitions and gas laws.\n Describe the structure of atom and how the arrangement of electrons affects the properties of the elements and their combining to make compounds.\n Distinguish among chemical reactions, nuclear reactions, and the dissolving of materials to make solutions.\n Summarize the nature of organic compounds and fossil fuels.\n Apply the terms velocity, acceleration, displacement, and time in linear and curved systems.\n Apply and utilize Newton's laws of motion for a linear system.\n Analyze energy and momentum conservation principles.\n Describe work and power and the functioning of simple machines.\n Summarize how energy is transferred in the form of heat, waves, and electricity.
