Physical Science- Group 3 (age 13+)

We will be using the High School Physical Science in Your Home curriculum to learn introductory concepts in Earth Science, Chemistry and Physics.   This text can usually be purchased used.  Topics covered will include, weather, astronomy, motion, forces, energy, electricity, matter, chemical formulas and equations, and geology. Safety goggles and a lab coat or apron are also required.  Time necessary to master these topics will vary from student to student, but plan on about 4 hours of work outside of class every week.
