Prerequisites: 7th Grade Math
In Science 150, students study basic principles of the earth sciences, and then push on to basic physics. A great foundation for all high school sciences.
Designed to be the last science course a student takes before high school biology, Apologia Physical Science discusses such topics as the atmosphere, hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, and environmentalism. Concentrates on physics of motion, Newton's Laws, gravity, and astrophysics. Includes numerous hands-on experiments. A perfect course for preparing students to study a college-prep high school science.
The text is conversational, making it easy to read and understand. Contains student exercises, experiments, photos, illustrations, and tests (with detailed solutions). Taught from a Christian viewpoint with emphasis on the incredible design features apparent throughout God's creation.
You'll find audio pronunciations for unique vocabulary words in the course plus video clips and graphic demonstrations. Dr. Wile shows you, with video examples, what you should be looking for and how you will look for it; he explains out loud – with animated graphics – some of the more difficult concepts and processes; and he presents live footage of what you are studying.
