General Description

Each week in Challenge I, students are assigned a physical science module from the text. In seminar, tutors lead students through simple lab demonstrations and explain the integrated math principles as well as contents from the current module. Integrating exposition skills, students also learn how to write a well-structured research paper with appropriate documentation.

This course discusses such topics as the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, weather, the structure of the earth, environmentalism, the physics of motion, Newton’s laws, gravity, and astrophysics.

The student text includes on-your-own questions and solutions, laboratory exercises, and chapter study guides. The two-book set includes the student text and the solutions manual.
