Physical science
Physical Science is the study of matter, energy and the changes that matter and energy undergo. An introduction to both chemistry and physics will be offered to students enrolling for this class. This course also offers a brief review of earth science topics.
Chemistry 10
Chemistry is a branch of physical science that studies the composition, structure, properties and change of matter. Chemistry is chiefly concerned with atoms and molecules and their interactions and transformations, for example, the properties of the chemical bonds formed between atoms to create chemical compounds.
CIS Chemistry
Chemistry is concerned with the properties of chemicals and the changes chemicals can undergo. This course is a College In the Schools Course offering students credit both in the high school and at Central Lakes College in Brainerd.
