Description

Class Experience

 The standards in this course
are designed as a survey of the core ideas in the physical sciences. Those core ideas will be
studied in more depth during in the chemistry and physics courses. The physical science
standards include abstract concepts such as the conceptualization of the structure of atoms and
the role they play in determining the properties of materials, motion and forces, the conservation
of energy and matter, wave behavior, electricity, and the relationship between electricity and
magnetism. The idea of radioactive decay is limited to the understanding of whole half-lives and
how a constant proportional rate of decay is consistent with declining measures that only
gradually approach to zero. Students investigate physical science concepts through the study of
phenomena, experiences in laboratory settings, and field work.
Mrs. Collins is a science and gifted education teacher, with 22 years of experience. 
Students will be given assignments and labs to complete at home each week. On average it will take about 1-2 hours per week. 
Access to the free textbook, which does not involve an account-https://www.tcss.net/site/handlers/filedownload.ashx?moduleinstanceid=39218&dataid=49945&FileName=8th%20Grade%20Physical%20Science%20Textbook.pdf paper pencils pens crayons or colored pencils highlighters glue scissors notecards ziploc bag
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Optional assessments will be given. 

Students will be provided periodic assessments, but these are optional. Parents can grade students in regard to completion of assignments or by using the assessments. All assessments will be presented on Quizlet. Quizlet is free, so please create an account for your child to use. Creating an account will save their work on the site. I will use Quizlet, using my teacher subscription, and then share the link with your child on the Outschool class page. Students can use the Quizlet link to practice notecards, listen to the notecards be read for our auditory learners. play the matching game for our gamer students, and then take a practice test for assessment purposes. Quizlet grades all assessments, and students will be able to retake all assessments til they are happy with the grade given. Visit www.quizlet.com to create a student account beforehand. 
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This is a teacher created class, using Holt Science for the basis of the course.
