Integrated Physics & Chemistry, Semester A

0.5 Unit
Grades: 11, 12

Chemistry is the study of how a set of substances with particular physical propertiesÑlike solid paper and the oxygen in the airÑcan react with each other to form different substances with entirely different propertiesÑlike gaseous water and carbon dioxide. In most cases, these chemical changes result in an energy change as well, either giving off energy or absorbing energy. The development of new types of materials, new methods of producing or storing energy, or new methods of interacting with genetic material all depend upon knowledge of chemistry.
Physics is one of the three main fields of science, along with biology and chemistry. Physics often seems like a grab bag of topics, including motion, magnets, machines, light, sound, and electrical circuits. The common thread running through all these things is that they each illustrate some very basic mathematical laws in our physical world. In brief, physics is the scientific study of matter, energy, and their most fundamental physical interactions, including attractions, repulsions, and collisions.
In Integrated Physics and Chemistry A, you will first learn about the ÒbasicsÓ 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.

How To Purchase This Course

Districts wishing to purchase this course should contact the course provider directly (see contact information above) and reference the contract in the "attachments" portion of the page linked here. If you are purchasing an Instructor Embedded course, please note that online instructors need not be certified in the state of Oklahoma. They must be certified to teach the content in at least one state or teach the subject at a college or university. To enroll a student in the course, you will need to obtain from the course provider (a) the instructor’s name; (b) the state through which the instructor is certified, and (c) the instructor’s certification number. If the instructor is employed to teach the subject at a college or university, you will need to obtain that institution’s iPEDS number. This information will be recorded in the SIS when you enroll a student in the course. When enrolling a student in a Content Only course, you must indicate in the SIS the name of the person monitoring the course.
