In this 28-week course, we will be using the God’s Design Series from MasterBooks.com.

This series involves four textbooks for this age group:

This course consists of 3 years of rotating stand alone classes. This school year we will focus on the Chemistry & Ecology text and a portion of the Physical World text which will lend so well to our LEGO building lessons. Expect to have fun while we learn about how God made everything in the universe!

High School Physical Science/ Intro to Physics

“Thank you for such an amazing first year of homeschooling. Your classes are so much fun!”

Recommended for 8th-10th grade

In this 30-week course, we will learn all about the world we live from a Christian view. We will study things as familiar as air, water and sound and others as mysterious as radioactivity and distant galaxies as well as a healthy dose of engineering concepts. Do you like to predict the weather? We’ll study that, too. I like to have fun while I learn, and science is full of fun! Expect the classes to be filled with research, labs, experiments and all sorts of hands-on and real-world applications.

This course will provide a firm foundation for all high school science courses with critical thinking, scientific discovery & research, and career exploration.

This course & textbook meet the requirements for High School Physical Science and lab credit. I will provide curriculum from the following textbook.

Textbook: Introductory Physics (2nd or 3rd Editions), by John Mays

***The textbook is not required in class, but you will want a copy to use at home. I suggest the e-book version with a 1-year license. It is less than half the cost of the actual book. Click here for the link!
