Mysti Chisholm, RPSGT, MBA-HM
In this second semester-long course, middle school students (appropriate for grades 6th-8th) will study Physical Science including forces, motion, energy, electricity, and magnetism.
US Grade 6 - 8
This Semester 2 class is a 15-week class that covers one semester. Students will meet once a week and will also be expected to complete homework at home. This class will focus on five aspects of Physical Science including motion, energy, forces, electricity, and magnetism. This class follows the Semester 1 class for a full year of Physical Science but it is not a pre-requisite. Simple equations as well as multiplication and division are used during some lessons. Students are allowed to use...
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 (who has now graduated) for 10 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 OfferedHomework 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.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments OfferedA 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.
Grades OfferedA letter grade will be given for each homework assignment turned in. Grades and homework are not mandatory but will be given upon request or when work is turned in. A semester grade can be requested by parent/guardian.
Activities are not mandatory and can be adapted to fit the needs of each individual learner. Notes and homework can be digitally manipulated if student prefers, graded or not, no reading out loud in class.
Some math, graphing, and simple equations are used in class. Intermediate understanding of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division will be helpful.

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.
