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. These are to many, the most interesting topics in science. Format: This course is a FLEX Physical Science class for Semester 1. The course is geared for grades 6-12 (but registration dates are flexible). The class will meet state and Next Generation Science standards. If your child is currently on...
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. This class follows state and Next Generation Science standards. https://www.nextgenscience.org/sites/default/files/HS%20PS%20topics%20combined%206.12.13.pdf

I will let you know a full week before if the lab requires something special that is not commonly found in a home.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
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 or Quizizz. Quizlet and Quizizz grades all assessments, and students will be able to retake all assessments til they are happy with the grade given. We will also use a similar program online called Quizizz. Because of flex formatting, students will be testing on different days and even different weeks. Students will be asked to record their grade in their spiral for parents.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parents are needed the first week to help the student get use to the platform, and upload work. This is very important for success in the class. All students will need help finding the inbox, adding the spiral template to their spiral notebook, and uploading practice assignments (image, video and pdf) the first week. We ask that all flex parents check the class wall once a week to confirm the student is uploading weekly. Thank you. The first post will include important documents-standards, class expectations, and the science template.
