Physics Science Series II

Module contents

Extend physical science exploration to magnetism, forces, and sound

Students further their understanding of physical science concepts such as conservation of energy, how sound travels, and magnetic fields. They experiment with collisions, produce waveforms, and explore how pulleys work as simple machines.

In the module’s comprehensive culminating activity, students design a machine to detect counterfeit coins.
