Ch 19: Physical Science - Atmospheric Science: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Atmospheric Science chapter of this High School Physical Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about the atmosphere. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the essential atmospheric science concepts required in a typical high school physical science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other high school physical science work.
  • Identify the atmospheric science concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our high school physical science tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn atmospheric science and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding global warming, the nitrogen and carbon cycles, climate or any other atmospheric science topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their atmospheric science unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in high school physical science
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning atmospheric science simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live physical science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn atmospheric science on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

The Dynamic Earth: Internal & External Forces that Shape Earth's Surface

1. The Dynamic Earth: Internal & External Forces that Shape Earth's Surface

There are many geologic processes that shape the surface of the Earth. Not only do they build and destroy a variety of landscapes, but they also give us clues to the interior of the Earth and the forces that exist there.

Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

2. Temperature, Clouds, Wind & Humidity on the Atmospheric Cycle

Weather is the current state of the atmosphere and is determined by factors like temperature, pressure and humidity. These factors that cause periodic changes in the Earth's air masses are explored in this lesson.

Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

3. Natural Factors That Determine a Region's Climate

Climate is influenced by factors like atmosphere, ocean currents, landforms and plate tectonics. This lesson explains how these effects affect our weather patterns, which determine climate.

Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

4. Global Warming: Atmospheric Causes and Effect on Climate

Global warming is a multifaceted, complex issue. It involves both natural and human causes that can increase the amount of greenhouse gases. This lesson looks at some of the facts about global warming and how they could contribute to climate change.

Cycles of Matter: The Nitrogen Cycle and the Carbon Cycle

5. Cycles of Matter: The Nitrogen Cycle and the Carbon Cycle

Matter is constantly cycled between living and nonliving parts of the environment. Processes like photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation allow the carbon and nitrogen cycles to regenerate needed substances by recycling Earth's atoms.
