Promoting ACademic Excellence in Mathematics and Science for Workers of the 21st Century (PACE) was a consortium project made up of Indiana University Northwest, the Gary Community Schools, and the Merrillville Community Schools. The focus of this project was to prepare teachers and curricula for Tech Prep mathematics and science courses for the two school districts. The courses and course units prepared by the project are intended to promote the Core 40 Competencies of the Indiana Department of Education for High School courses. This document contains units for Physics and Physical Science designed to help students with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities learn physics. The Physics course includes the following units: (1) The Mathematics of Physics and Measurement; (2) Newton's Laws of Motion; (3) Electricity and Magnetism; and (4) Heat, Temperature, and Engines. The Physical Science course includes activities that link the traditional English, math, and physical science classes. Units in this course include: (1) Measure of Volume, Mass, Length; (2) Derived Measurements, Scalar Quantities; (3) The Chemical Industry; (4) Workplace Applications of Triangle Math; and (5) Motion and Energy.
