MSED 250 at NMU
 
 
Physical Science for Elementary Teachers
MSED 250 provides students with an introduction and opportunity to explore fundamental concepts of physical science. Through discussions and hands-on laboratory experiences we emphasize the use of higher-level thinking skills without the prerequisite of advanced mathematics.  
This course will include study in scientific inquiry, the nature of matter, force and motion, work, electricity and magnetism, sound, light, chemical reactions, chemical equations, and related topics. 
The primary goal of this course is to prepare pre-service K-8 teachers to help children:
•	understand, explore and discover physical science; 
•	view science as an integrated discipline;
•	discover scientific principles through an inquiry and constructivist approach.
