How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will be able to explore through lecture, experiments, demonstrations, homework, and discussion these five fields of physical science....force, motion, energy, electricity, and magnetism.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years. I have also homeschooled my daughter for 7 years. As a public school teacher, I taught Earth Science, Chemistry, Physical Science, Zoology, Biology, and more to hundreds of students. Science is a passion of mine and I find performing experiments both fascinating and illuminating when learning new scientific facts! In this class, students will have ample opportunity to perform their own experiments to reiterate the information they learn in class. I have my Bachelor's degree in Biology/Pre-Med and a Master's in Healthcare Administration.
Homework is assigned each week at the end of class. Homework will be posted in the classroom. Please allow 1-2 hours for homework each week. Most homework will be an at-home experiment but might also include worksheets or reports.
Stopwatch Meter stick Tape measure Spring scale Aluminum soda can Fishing line Wide-mouth jar or beaker Nails Plastic spoon Paper cup Hair dryer Tissue paper 2-L plastic soda bottle Masking tape Coins Dowel rod Eye hook Piece of foam Sewing needle Bar magnet Bulb socket (see Resources) Light bulb (see Resources) Insulated wire (see Resources) Electric switch (see Resources) Spring scale (see Resources) D-cell battery Legos
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
A letter grade will be given for each homework assignment if students upload them in a Teacher Message. The parent will receive a teacher feedback report on the student's progress at the end of the course.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
All experiments utilize household materials. Some experiments may be messy. Please read homework beforehand to determine if experiments need to be performed outside to save the house from a mess :-)  Scissors will also be used in a few experiments. Please make sure your learner can independently handle them safely.
