IPC consists of twelve chapters of text and twelve companion student activity books. This course introduces students to the people, places and principles of physics and chemistry. It is written by internationally respected scientist/author, John Hudson Tiner, who applies the vignette approach which effectively draws readers into the text and holds attention. The author and editors have deliberately avoided complex mathematical equations in order to entice students into high school level science. Focus is on the people who contributed to development of the Periodic Table of the Elements. Students learn to read and apply the Table while gaining insight into basic chemistry and physics. This is one of our most popular courses among high school students, especially those who have a history of under-performance in science courses due to poor mathematical and reading comprehension skills. The course is designed for two high school transcript credits. Teachers may require students to complete all twelve chapters for two transcript credits or may select only six chapters to be completed for one transcript credit for Physical Science, Physics, or Chemistry. Compliance with state and local academic essential elements should be considered when specific chapters are selected by teachers. As applicable to local policies, transcript credit may be assigned as follows when students complete all 12 chapters: Physical Science for one credit and Chemistry for one credit, or Integrated Physics and Chemistry for two credits. May require supplemental local classes/labs.
