Description: This is a comprehensive, college-prep Physical Science course designed to prepare students for High School Chemistry and Physics. With this being our first “math based” high school science class, we recommend this course be taken before Chemistry and Physics. Our Physical Science class is not a junior high level physical science you would normally equate with physical science. Of note, if your child struggled in Algebra I we highly recommend this class before Chemistry. Hands-on labs will be incorporated each week to help students learn more practical ways physical science applies to life. Homework will be given each week with a test every 3-4 weeks.

Book: Modern Chemistry, Holt, Rinehart, and Winston, ISBN# 0-03-056537-5. Order used online or on Amazon.
Description: This is a demanding, comprehensive, college-prep Chemistry course with a hands-on lab each week. We recommend that high school Physical Science be taken prior to this course, especially if your son/daughter struggled with or hasn’t taken Algebra I. This advice comes after years of experience and seeing many students do much better in Chemistry after taking our Physical Science class. Hands-on labs, demonstrations and activities will be incorporated each week to help students learn how to implement various chemical concepts and interactions. The labs will also give students a better understanding as to how chemistry applies to life. Homework is given each week with a test every 3-4 weeks.
