Physical Science: This is an introduction to basic concepts of physical science for the student who has completed no college course in chemistry or physics. This course is designed to provide an understanding of the facts, methods, and significance of the physical sciences by concentrating on selected topics from physics, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy. Intermediate algebra is a prerequisite for this course. The in-class version uses The Physical Universe 13th Ed. by Krauskopf and Beiser and will have several homework assignments, a few projects, and four tests throughout the semester; the online version also uses The Physical Universe 13th Ed. by Krauskopf and Beiser and will have several homework assignments and four tests, all of which are done through the ASUN Portal. Physical Science Lab: This is a two hour per week lab. The lab material covers topics from physics, chemistry, and astronomy. Labs will require the student to measure and record data, then interpret their results. Intermediate algebra is a prerequisite. The in-class version uses A Physical Science Laboratory Manual by Jannie Trautwein and Ann Ross and will meet once a week during the semester for 11 labs; the online version uses a website called Smart Science ( to carry out 12 virtual labs.
