Science 7

This year in science we will be learning the physical setting aspects of the New York State Intermediate Science Curriculum. The topics include Physics and Chemistry.
                                                                     
Content includes:

Lab safety

Scientific inquiry                                                                    

Motion and Forces                                                                                     

Simple machines

Energy – waves, forms

Other physics topics                                                          

Electricity and magnetism

Matter -solids/liquids/gases, density, phase changes             

Atoms            

Elements – the periodic table                                                 

Other chemistry topics 

Materials that are needed in class everyday:

Notebook, a composition notebook is preferred

Folder or 3 ring binder for handouts

Pens and pencils 

Grading:

Homework must be completed by the start of class to receive full credit          

Participation/projects/homework                                                                      

Laboratory and hands-on activities                 

We will usually have a quiz during the units and a test at the end of each unit 

Absences:

Absences need to be made up after school as soon as possible. Any missed handouts will be stored in a designated folder. It is the responsibility of the student to complete missed assignments, lab activities, quizzes, and/or tests.
