Grade 7 - Science

Science 7 B - Semester 2 (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 7B is about matter and energy. It discusses chemical changes that occur in matter, and it teaches how to identify different forms of energy. The course also covers force fields and the factors that affect their strength. In the first unit, you’ll apply the law of conservation of energy to the products and reactants in a chemical reaction. In the second unit, you’ll be introduced to gravitational, electric, and magnetic force fields. In the third unit, you’ll learn more about energy transformations in objects and systems as you study kinetic energy, potential energy, and thermal energy.
