The physical science curriculum is designed to continue the investigations of the life sciences that began in grades K-8 and provide students with the necessary skills to have a richer knowledge base in physical science. The course is designed as a survey course of chemistry and physics. This curriculum includes the more abstract concepts such as the conceptualization of the structure of atoms, motion and forces, and the conservation of energy and matter, the action/reaction principle, and wave behavior. Students investigate physical science concepts through experience in laboratories and field work using the processes of inquiry.
