M/J Physical Science introduces students to the basic skills that scientists use when making scientific investigations. It will build a base for the student to conduct scientific inquiry, which scaffolds up from sixth to eighth grade. This course covers the concepts of force and motion, light and the electromagnetic spectrum, and chemistry. Upon building the foundation for scientific inquiry, students will use those skills to investigate the realm of physical science. The students will show their understanding through projects and experiments to demonstrate how different properties of matter are displayed.
