In Physical Science, the instructor will facilitate and provide the student with foundational information regarding the principles of Chemistry and Physics. Students will learn that chemistry has contributed to our knowledge of the world and has enabled chemists to make tremendous changes in the way we live. This course will also involve the studying of chemistry as it relates to the properties of chemicals and the reactions these chemicals undergo. The usage of the scientific method will be emphasized through scientific experimentation and special projects. In the study of Physics students will learn and apply the laws of force and motion in understanding how objects move and the developments of the simple machine. In addition we will explore the different forms of energy: Chemical; Heat; Mechanical; Nuclear; Radiant; Electrical.

Study of the properties of matter and how these observed phenomena are determined by molecular and particle interactions.
