COURSE DESCRIPTION:  The middle school physical science course is designed to give students the necessary skills for a smooth transition from middle school physical science standards to high school physical science standards.  The course allows them to work conceptually on the laws of physical science:  Conservation of Matter, Conservation of Energy, Motion and Forces, and Energy Transformation.  They use what they observe to explain the difference between physical and chemical changes.
