Homeschool Science Curriculum
SPECIAL NOTE: The following lessons are Flash based. They will work fine on your Mac or PC laptop/desktop computer. They will also work on your tablet (phone too), however you will need to download a browser that will open these lessons. Click here for more information.
These lessons have been chosen from different sections of the curriculum in order to give you a good idea of the different topics covered. They are not in order. The top three are in both the standard and advanced versions, and the bottom two are from the advanced version.
Below is a brief explanation of how each chapter is laid out using chapter four as an example.
The first three lesson in each chapter are the foundational lessons that the advanced version builds upon. These lessons give the advanced student the necessary physical science concepts to then go on to the more advanced lessons in the chapter. (Note: these first three lessons are in both the standard and advanced versions.)
4.1 Action and Reaction: Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
Experiment: action and reaction
4.2 Centripetal Force
Experiment: the racer in motion
4.3 Lubricants, Heat and Wear
Experiment: wet and dry lubricants
The last two lessons are designed to further challenge and complete the student's physical science education. In these lessons the student also learns the steps involved in an accurate lab write up. Note: these lessons are specifically for the 7th - 10th grade students and are only in the advanced version curriculum.
4.4 Graphing Motion 3
-- linear and nonlinear slopes
4.5 Graphing analysis
-- graphing the glide ratio of the glider
Cathy Duffy Review
“All of this makes the Standard or Advanced Physical Science kit an excellent choice for those looking for a hands-on physical science course.”
