This course introduces students to a powerful way of thinking about the physical world with which they interact every day. Students learn to apply their math skills to analyze the motion of objects, the behavior of electric charges and the phenomena of waves, among other things. Each module may include self-checks, interactive and review activities, projects, discussion boards, simulations, scientific investigations, and assessments. Students experience hands-on activities, applications, group interactions and various technologies throughout this course. This course is aligned with the Virginia Standards of Learning and will provide students with the foundation to further explore the physical sciences.
