While life science focuses on the study of living systems, physical science turns to the study of non-living systems! It includes four main areas: astronomy, physics, chemistry, and earth science. This course is a FLEX Physical Science class for Semester 1. The course is geared for grades 6-12. I...
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.

Students will be assigned assignments that will take on average 1-2 hours per week.
Parents will need to allow the student to visit https://www.tcss.net/site/handlers/filedownload.ashx?moduleinstanceid=39218&dataid=49945&FileName=8th%20Grade%20Physical%20Science%20Textbook.pdf a free online Physical Science textbook. Students do not need an account to access the link. notecards spiral notebook pen or pencil colored pencils
Optional assessments will be assigned each month. 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 will be a teacher created class, based on the Holt Science curriculum.
