Physical Science introduces students to the study of matter and energy. It, therefore, includes topics from both Physics (such as acceleration, light, and electrical current) and Chemistry (such as states of matter, chemical reactions, and nuclear decay). The emphasis in this course is on a conceptual understanding of the fundamental forces and processes at work in the world around us. However, some basic math skills are required.
There are 8 examinations in Physical Science. Wysession, Michael et al., Physical Science—Concepts in Action, Pearson Education, Inc.
