Please note that this class runs as a camp during the summer. Save $35 when you use code DANLEYSUMMER35 and register before April 15. In this course students will gain a solid foundation in the fundamentals of physics, chemistry, and biology. We'll start with five weeks of physics, then move into five weeks of chemistry, and finish with five weeks of biology. Previous concepts will be integrated into later topics when relevant. Images, hands-on activities, and practice questions will...
Students will gain an understanding of core concepts in physics, chemistry, and biology that will prepare them for higher level courses.
I will provide optional practice sheets to reinforce concepts from class. Students will also have the option of assigned reading from the e-textbook which will be approximately 8 pages per week. In addition there will be optional out of class activities using household items such as designing a balloon powered car using a water bottle or a solar oven from a pizza box.
After the first class, I will provide a file that includes common household materials or easily purchased items to have handy for each week. Students will also receive the e-textbook as a file after the first class. For the first class students will need pen and paper and a paper clip or a safety pin as well as a simple calculator (cell phone or an online calculator will work fine).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be provided with an optional quiz at the end of each unit (physics, chemistry, and biology) to test their knowledge of the subject matter.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will provide a copy of an e-textbook in PDF format to accompany the course after the first class meeting. A PDF of the periodic table will also be included for students to use or they may use their own.
