Integrated Chemistry and Physics - Grade 11
One Credit Each Semester
This course is a graduation requirement.
Students in Grade 11 must sign up for this course.
Integrated Chemistry-Physics is intended for the student who wishes to earn a diploma, but does not have the math background to successfully complete regular chemistry or physics, and who would have otherwise not taken a physical science course. This class is intended for students who are not likely to major in a science degree program in college. ICP is a laboratory-based class designed to introduce students to the basic concepts of both chemistry and physics while developing reasoning and higher order thinking skills. Students enrolled in this course use scientific inquiry to examine the topics of motion and energy of macroscopic objects, chemical, electrical, mechanical and nuclear energy, properties of matter, chemical reactions and bonding, transport of energy, magnetism, energy production, and its relationship to the environment and economy. Although this course is less math-intensive than regular chemistry or physics, students will be required to use algebra and analytical problem-solving skills on a regular basis. Students will receive a solid foundation of chemistry and physics and be prepared for the further study of these topics, if they choose to do so.
Students in grade 11 should sign up for Integrated Chemistry and Physics A first semester.
Students in grade 11 should sign up for Integrated Chemistry and Physics B second semester.
