FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY

Grade: 10

Credit: 1 unit
PREREQUISITE:
Science teacher approval, Biology I or Adv. Studies Biology I After successful completion (C), student may
enroll in Chemistry I as an elective their junior/senior year

This course is required for all 10th grade students (unless enrolled in Chemistry I or Advanced Studies Chemistry I) and must be
passed prior to enrollment in another science course. It is a laboratory-based course in which students explore fundamental
chemistry, physics, and related earth and space science concepts and principles. Students enrolled in this course will develop
problem solving skills and strategies while investigating the structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, forces, motion,
and the interactions between energy and matter. Working in a laboratory environment, students investigate the basics ofchemistry
and physics in solving real-world problems.
