Notes

1 Introduction to Chemistry and Physics is geared for students who want to take Chemistry and then Physics in sequence in the 11th and 12th grades.  Physical Science covers similar material, but since it is potentially the last science class a student will take, it is a little more general in scope.  College-bound students seeking whatever degree should stay in the college track which would mean taking Introduction to Chemistry and Physics in 10th grade and following up with Chemistry and Physics in the following years.

2Chemistry studies reality at the molecular level, the changes it can undergo at that level, and the energy involved in those changes.  The Introduction class (see 1 above) focuses on the nut and bolts, the grammar if you like, of that science.
