Physical Science Syllabus and Sample Pages

High School Physical Science in Your Home includes two manuals. They contain the tools you need to use to help your high school student achieve a well-rounded year of studying high school physical science.

The Student Manual has lists of questions for each week for your student to research. This is NOT a textbook, but a guide the student follows to discover everything he/she needs to know that encompasses high school physical science. We recommend the use of the local library and/or the internet as sources for the research. If neither of these options are available or are not your preference, then a textbook can be used. The student manual also contains the directions for each week’s laboratory work.

The Parent Manual contains a list of supplies that are necessary for the entire year. The information that the student needs to have discovered in his/her research is also included. Since many of us have not taken physical science in a while and may have forgotten much of what we did do, the Parent Manual contains detailed explanations of the labs and homework. Quizzes and end-of-semester exams are also included for you to give your student. Of course the answers for all the quizzes and exams are included in the Parent Manual for you.

We have put together a kit with the harder to find items in aPhysical Science Lab Kit to make your homeschooling experience more enjoyable. These kits are only available to those who have bought the Manuals. You can find a list of the items included in the kit on the physical science catalog page.
