Integrated Science: Chemistry and Physics (Physical Science) – GROUP 1


Deposit Due at Time of Registration:

ICP (Physical Science) allows the student to survey both the chemical and physical aspects of the created world as they explore fundamental chemistry and physics principles. Students enrolled in this course examine, through the process of scientific inquiry, the structure and properties of matter, chemical reactions, forces, motion, electricity, and the interactions between energy and matter. This course provides a conceptual introduction to chemistry and physics.

Some states consider this course an equivalent to a 9th grade Physical Science or high school credit. Please write to the teacher for more information on this course for high school credit. This course is not in the high school progression for NCAA students.

Integrated Chemistry & Physics by CK-12.  This free textbook will be available on-line, PDF or can be printed. A link will be sent to all registered students/parents.

Labs: The labs for this course will be supplied by the teacher after the course begins. The majority of items needed for the labs can be found around the house or easily picked up at a grocery or hardware store. There will be a few items that will need to be purchased online (i.e. circuit kit (~$15 and small gram scale ~$10) but most items can be obtained at a local grocery or drug store.

Amanda Hunter

Dr. Amanda Hunterhas enjoyed math & science since she was a child and became very interested in health care in high school which led her to Purdue University where she earned her Doctorate in Pharmacy in 2005. After seeing how closely diet and lifestyle are related to health and prevention of chronic disease, she also completed the Institute for Integrative Nutrition Health Coaching program in 2014. 

While she loved working in a traditional Pharmacy setting, Amanda has the heart of a teacher. Amanda’s significant educational background combined with her collegiate coursework and teaching experience make her a wonderful math and science teacher. Her students have included pupils who are advanced STEM students and those who are not as STEM-inclined. Amanda works to make her classes very practical while maintaining a college-preparatory standard. Students will learn how algebra, science, and health concepts will be applied to their adult-lives even if they do not enter a math/science field!. Online teaching for the past 7 years has allowed her to combine her favorite things… teaching, children, math, science, and health.

    This was our first experience with Excelsior Classes, and I must say it was money well spent. My son truly enjoyed the class. I was very impressed with Dr. Hunter, the content, and the experiments. We will definitely enroll our younger children in this class in the future. Thanks for a great year, Dr. Hunter!

    My son’s first experience at Excelsior was in the Integrated Chemistry Physics class with Dr. Hunter. I approached Dr. Hunter with specific questions about the class before enrolling my son, and her response to my e-mail was thorough and prompt. We were excited to enroll Cade in ICP after reading about her educational and collegiate training. Without a doubt, we knew Dr. Hunter was highly trained in the subject matter that she would be teaching! Once the class started, she did not disappoint. The instruction was delivered in an interesting format with an optimal balance between teacher-led instruction, student questions, labs, and learning games. My son, who can feel uncomfortable approaching an adult with questions, feels empowered to speak up if he is unsure about an assignment or if Dr. Hunter’s instruction spurs new questions about the material. Additionally, Dr. Hunter is prompt in providing feedback on assignments. Without a doubt, we recommend Dr. Hunter and the ICP class. It was money well spent on our son’s education.

    My daughter took Chemistry and Physics in our first year of enrolling in Excelsior Classes. I didn’t really know how it would work at first, science online, but all my doubts were soon dissipated!! Mrs. Hunter is a fantastic teacher who made my daughter feel like she was in a real classroom, instead of a virtual one. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone who wants a education, fun, and interactive science course with an amazing teacher who really cares about her students!! Thank you so much, Excelsior Classes and Mrs. Hunter, for such a great year in science.
