Using the Course
We've designed this course so that it's easy to navigate for students who are struggling with physical science concepts. Check out the two most popular options to decide which best fits your needs:
- Start at the beginning with an investigation of motion and force, and advance through the chapters and lessons in order until you reach the last lesson on the use of mathematical relationships in science. Lessons follow a natural progression, making this option simple to follow along.
- Identify physical science topics you find most difficult, and skip the material you already know. If you only need to study density and buoyancy, you can go straight to that chapter. Though some lessons might refer to topics in previous lessons, each one is designed to stand alone to make sure you get all of the info you need to understand a topic.
Simply follow these steps, and you'll be on your way to mastering physical science!
- Start at the beginning or find the chapter subjects or lesson topics you need to learn about.
- Open a lesson and play the video.
- Test your understanding of the material using the short lesson quizzes and chapter exams.
- Ask our expert instructors questions if you need extra help learning a physical science concept.
- Go to the next lesson in the chapter to continue learning.
- See your course progress on the physical science remedial course page.
