Recorded MS
Physical Science, Part Two

Continue studying the matter and forces God used to create our universe!

Total classes: 18

Prerequisite: Physical Science, Part One (live or recorded)

Suggested grade level: 7th to 9th

Suggested credit: One full semester of Physical Science; parts 1, 2 & 3 together equal one year of high school science. This is a 3-part course; for a total of 1.5 middle school science credits. Ideally, high school students would complete all three parts for one year of high school science credit.


This is a ‘flipped’ class. Students are required to watch the Lecture Video before the Recorded Class. The Recorded Class is a discussion (question and answer) format based on the lecture. Students are expected to answer all questions before I discuss the correct answer.

We will be studying the matter and forces that God used to create our universe. Completion of this course (both parts 1, 2, and 3) will be excellent preparation for high school Chemistry and Physics.
