Science 6 A - Semester 1 (Credit: 0.50)

Science is the study of the natural world. It relies on investigations and evidence to describe the natural events that occur around us. Science 6A is an integrated science course that covers topics selected from Earth and space science and physical science. This course discusses the structure and properties of matter, force interactions between objects, and Earth and space systems. In the first unit, you’ll explore the composition of matter and atomic arrangements of substances. In the second unit, you’ll identify forces and analyze the motion of objects using words, equations, and graphs. In the last unit, you will study interactions in the solar system and the role that gravity plays in the motion of celestial bodies.
