In this class students will be expected to work fairly independently, following the detailed lab instructions presented in the textbook. Students will work in groups of 4-6 under supervision. A schedule will be distributed which will allow for the completion of the book by the end of May. Each student must follow or be ahead of the schedule so they will be comfortable with the lab topics. Lectures will not be given, although review of chapter concepts may be included at times to determine comprehension of the subject matter.
Students must complete the reading and On Your Own questions in the textbook each week between classes. Class time will primarily be spent doing experiments except on a few occasions during which we will be doing review games and checking lab notebooks. Study Guides and Test will also be completed at home. Families will rotate procuring the supplies for each lab which will keep the cost of the class down.
Required Text: Before the first class day each student will need an Apologia Physical Science 2nd Edition Textbook, Apologia Physical Science Student Notebook, and Solutions Manual. The tests are included in the Solutions Manual.
