Integrated Science: Chemistry and Physics
ICP 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.

Amanda Hunter has 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 4 years has allowed her to combine her favorite things… teaching, children, math, science, and health.
