  • Course Description

"Isaac Newton believed that all knowledge- including knowledge of nature- was, in the end, knowledge of God." Mitch Stokes. Physical Science is a high school level lab science, but may be taken in 8th grade as well. Students will learn to take good notes and to study independently from a textbook. Each week students are assigned a module from the text. In class they will conduct experiments, work through integrated math principles, as well as content from the current module. Throughout the course we will highlight evidence for creation and a Creator. Quizzes and tests will be given in class.
