ASPC is an ideal first science course designed for honors-level or accelerated high school students.
This course is similar to an IPC course but goes deeper into topics so that students get a solid introduction to the skills, concepts, and methods of scientific study specifically pertaining to physics and chemistry. It also includes mathematical problems as well as verbal exercises.
Energy, work, Newton’s Laws of Motion, substances, electrical circuits, the atomic model, the periodic table, atomic bonding, and other subjects can be closely investigated with Algebra I proficiency. (We recommend ASPC for students who have completed Algebra I, typically in 8th grade.)
A clear objectives list, tasteful graphical format, and lucid narrative a features that characterize all Novare textbooks.
In the spirit of “drawing students upward into the adult world of science,” our lab experiments emphasize method and skills used in real science labs. Scientific notation, metric prefixes, unit conversions, and the writing of lab reports are essential skills that students will thoroughly learn in this text.
