Science 8B focuses on physical science concepts from physics to chemistry. This course begins with an introduction to the history of physics. Then, the course explores the fundamentals of physics, including graphing and Newton’s laws of motion. The second half of the course begins with an introduction to the history of the study of chemistry. The course then explores the different properties of matter, elements, compounds, and mixtures. Science 8B ends with a brief look at the current research that is taking place in these two areas of science.
