Mrs. Argo's Advanced Physical Science

 
Hello! Welcome to Physical Science! Feel free to look around as I finish setting up for the fall semester, and be sure to check out my syllabus for a list of supplies. Please also note specific supplies for each hour:
 
2nd Hour - Clorox wipes
3rd Hour - Kleenex
4th Hour - Highlighters
5th Hour - Scissors
6th Hour - 0.5 or 0.7 Lead
 
These supplies will be used for all of my classes, and can be brought in at your convenience. Thank you, and I look forward to meeting you all! 
 
COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Physical Science (High School Level Course) Credit: 1
Students will be expected to go beyond grade level standards in order to fully understand the complex scientific connections within the content. This course covers the foundational concepts of chemistry and physics. Chemistry is the study of the properties, composition, structure, and interactions of matter. Physics is the study of the relationship between matter and energy. Students will be active participants of learning by discovering the many different scientific concepts found within this course and by using those concepts to explain phenomena observed in the real world. This course will have a hands-on, minds-on, and collaborative environment which will require students to develop and use critical thinking skills.
 
I would also add that even though we are a high school credit course, students are still expected to perform on the 8th grade state science test. As such, they will be reviewing and exploring the entire traditional eighth grade science curriculum in addition to Physical Science concepts.
