Course Overview

Physical Science is an amazing course that is a perfect introduction to the miraculous environmental conditions necessary for life to exist, survive and thrive on this Big Blue Planet. It is presented from a Biblical Worldview and offers one high school credit.  This foundational course is a combination of both an introduction to Chemistry (the study of matter), and an introduction to Physics (the study of motion). The conditions for life are much more than “just add water”. Get prepared for quite the adventure as we make one astonishing discovery after another enabling Earth to be quite a unique and marvelous place to call home!

Both semesters are self-paced, comprehensive, and combined, total 32 weeks of instruction. In each Physical Science course, Dr. Daniel  Korow DVM presents the key concepts and ideas that makes Physical Science truly fascinating! He draws from many sources creating a total package that integrates General Science, Physical Science, Biology, Chemistry, Anatomy and Physiology, as well as his experiences as a veterinarian.

In addition, Dr. Dan’s course will help your student : “Learn how to learn” and remember those facts and names that seem to be mind boggling. This course is designed to make Science understandable. Memorization may work on the short term to get that “A” on an exam, but understanding and mastery of the material will last a lifetime!

Did you know?

Many of our local home schoolers using the Exploring Creation with Physical Science, 2nd Edition also complete the “On Your Own” questions in the text book as well as the Apologia’s self-tests in the Physical Science Test & Solutions book. Those homeschoolers are well prepared for later exams, testing and real-time use of their knowledge!

When both semesters are taken, they offer one high school credit.
