  • Details

    High School Physical Science is designed as a two-semester course for first- or second-year high school students. Physical Science includes the same rigorous courseware as Integrated Physics and Chemistry (IPC) but meets the needs of customers who offer Physical Science rather than IPC. Introductory chemistry topics include matter, the periodic table, chemical reactions, and acids and bases. Introductory physics topics include motion, energy, waves, electricity, and magnetism. High School science courses include strategies for dealing with common misconceptions, based on information gathered from Uncovering Student Ideas in Science by Page Keeley and Joyce Tugel, Project 2061, and the National Science Education Standards. Courses integrate questioning strategies and additional structuring of the learning experience guided by the Model Instruction Program started by David Hestenes and the American Modeling Teachers Association.
