Physical Science with lab - (from online description) This middle school physical science course is specifically designed to be the second course taken during junior high. It is created to give middle school students an understanding of the basic world that surrounds them each day of their lives and the forces in creation, so that they can appreciate the real-world relevance of scientific inquiry and the beauty of creation. We believe that students’ education should prepare them for life, not just an academic year. Throughout their academic school year, your students will conduct controlled experiments where they observe a problem, ask a question, formulate a testable hypothesis, and then conduct the experiment and analyze the data to see if their results support their hypothesis. It involves quantitative data that require measurements. The lab portion of Apologia guides students through this process. Additionally, students will conduct descriptive experiments to use their 5 senses to make qualitative observations and describe what they learn. Again, our homeschool curriculum was designed with your student’s success in mind, and we guide students through this process with detailed descriptions and photographs. The parent’s job is to ensure that the student completes and understands the assignment and administer and score most tests at home. This class will meet for 1hour for 30 weeks.
