14 Content standards in science are inquiry-based and include concepts and skills in chemistry and physics that are considered foundational. This focus is designed to prepare students for the physics and chemistry courses that are often taken in high school. The scientific process and application skills should be integrated into the teaching of the required science content to allow students to combine reasoning and thinking skills with scientific knowledge. This Physical Science course provides students with a firm foundation for scientific literacy and for the pursuit of subsequent science courses. ~Alabama Course of Study: Science (p. 32)
