Integrated Physics & Chemistry A / B
This is a two-semester class. In Integrated Physics and Chemistry A, you will first learn about the “basics” of physics, since physics is actually the foundation of chemistry. In this course, you will learn how to describe and analyze motion, how forces interact with matter, and how to further describe these interactions with the aid of the concepts of energy and momentum. You will also learn about waves, electricity, and magnetism. In Integrated Physics and Chemistry B, you will begin your study of chemistry. This includes the atomic and molecular structures that result in different chemical properties and the concepts and tools that will enable you to predict chemical properties and chemical reactions. You will learn about key types of chemical relationships and reactions, including solutions and acid-base reactions. Finally, you will extend your knowledge into the areas of thermal and nuclear energy.
