Physical Science

This research-based science course introduces students to chemistry and physics, equipping them to be student scientists. A clean, uncluttered layout helps students focus on key details and information. Going beyond science facts, students will learn to think critically about real-world science problems. Case studies, worldview sleuthing activities, ethics boxes, and mini-labs all give students opportunities for hands-on experiences with real-world problems. Additionally, they will be given strategies for making ethical decisions based on a biblical worldview.

    How We Teach Physical Science

    Biblical Worldview in Physical Science

    Students will analyze, evaluate, and draw conclusions about five themes in physical science on the basis of biblical teaching, including (1) order in nature, (2) science and dominion, (3) role of modeling, (4) pursuit of science, (5) ethics of science.

    Balanced Learning

    Students have an opportunity to prepare for future learning as they first study concepts in chemistry. These initial concepts give them time to master the math needed for units covering physics.

    Ethics in Physical Science

    Ethics boxes give students specific opportunities to handle real-world ethical issues in physical science. They will be asked to address the issues using biblical principles, outcomes, and motivations

    Application Opportunities

    Students will have abundant opportunities for direct application, many of which draw on higher-order thinking skills. In-text mini-labs require direct application of lesson concepts; full labs give opportunities for extended hands-on application; and ethics boxes, case studies, and worldview sleuthing activities involve written application.

    Physical Science Educational Materials

    Student Edition

    Four units—two for chemistry and two for physics—introduce students to key elements of the study of physical science. Chemistry units move the student from matter and what it is made of to how matter interacts in chemical reactions, nuclear changes, solutions, and acids and bases. In the physics units, students will learn about how matter and energy move and why they move as well as the different forms of energy. Clear, scientifically accurate images help them picture the structures they study. Case studies, worldview sleuthing activities, mini-labs, ethics boxes, and questions help students think like scientists and view physical science from a biblical perspective.

    Teacher Edition

    The teacher edition presents research-based teaching strategies, including active learning, inquiry activities, group discussions, and formative assessments, all of which are aligned with educational objectives. The strategies focus on explaining concepts to students by moving from concrete to abstract and by linking scientific concepts and processes with prior learning. Strategies also consider the affective as well as cognitive domains. The teacher edition features a suggested teaching schedule, icon-coded items like weblinks and demonstrations, complete answers to review questions, and background information to enhance classroom instruction. The teacher edition also includes a full-year lesson plan overview.

    Lab Manual

    The lab manual gets students exploring God’s world through a variety of activities. Students will solidify their understanding of concepts by connecting the content with real-world problems. They will develop key science, engineering, and problem-solving skills through observing, recording, and analyzing samples and data to make models. They then test those models to understand their workability. Students will have opportunities to complete both STEM lab activities and inquiry-based labs.
