Course Overview:

I teach high school chemistry and physics I know what background younger students need to be successful in chemistry and physics. I designed the content to prepare students for advanced courses in chemistry and physics. There is basic algebra in this course, which will help students see the practical application of the math skills they have obtained.

This course includes:

  • 9 MODULES
  • 38 WORKSHEETS
  • 380 TOTAL PRACTICE QUESTIONS
  • 38 VIDEO LESSONS
  • 38 VIDEOS GOING OVER THE SOLUTIONS TO THE WORKSHEETS
  • 9 END OF MODULE EXAMS

 

What the Course Includes:

In the chemistry section we go through the atom, the Bohr models, ionic and covalent bonding, acids and bases, chemical reactions, nuclear chemistry, and matter and energy. There are 22 lessons covering these concepts.

In the physics section we cover motion, forces, work, energy, power, simple machines, waves and electricity including analyzing series and parallel circuits. There are 17 lessons in this physics sections.

Course Goals:

Upon completion of the course the student will be able to take high school chemistry and high school physics. I designed this course based on what I wish my students had background in before they take my chemistry and physics courses. This physical science course will give the student a spring board into high school chemistry and physics.

Target Audience:

8th or 9th graders or anyone preparing to take chemistry or physics.

Course Requirements:

Basic math skills including basic algebra. There is a video going over the basics of algebra used in this course.

How the Course is Presented:

The design of this course is simple. There is a lesson that ranges in length from 5 minutes to no more than 15 minutes. There are no bells and whistles, but only old fashioned instruction. I talk directly to the student and they can see me talking to them as I write on the screen. After each lesson there is a 10 question quiz. There is a video the student can watch after the complete the quiz that goes over the solutions to the quiz.

There is a module exam at the end of the module for a total of 9 modules.
