10th Grade Science Curriculum

10th Grade Science Curriculum
View Our Lesson Demos!

A 10th grade science curriculum should focus on more complex scientific formulas, which will  prepare your child for future learning. Independent learning also becomes more important during this time, as students will be doing more laboratory experiments.

Time4Learning auto-assigns Chemistry for 10th grade science but parents can easily access subjects such as biology and physics. Learn more about what science your student should study in sophomore year and how Time4Learning can help you achieve their learning goals.

What Do You Teach in Science in Tenth grade?

In tenth grade science, the curriculum should include the composition and properties of matter, changes and interactions of matter, organic chemistry, nuclear chemistry and more. These topics will help them meet their tenth grade objectives at year’s end.

The following are some additional topics that a tenth grade science curriculum should include:

  • The historical development of the atomic theory
  • Elements, compounds and mixtures
  • The types of chemical bonds
  • Balancing oxidation-reduction equations
  • How kinetic-molecular theory explains the properties of gases
  • Properties of acids and bases
  • Types of radioactive decay

Although Time4Learning auto-assigns chemistry for 10th grade science, parents can also access biology and physics courses.

Science Objectives for Tenth Grade

A tenth grade science curriculum should provide objectives for your child. By the end of the tenth grade your student should have a detailed understanding of states of matter, chemical reactions, the periodic table and more.

Your science objectives for tenth grade should follow along these lines:

  • Accurately describe indicators of chemical change.
  • Express the arrangement of electrons of atoms using electron configurations.
  • Explain the concept of reaction rate.
  • Explain how dimensional analysis works.
  • Apply Dalton’s law of partial pressures to describe the composition of gases.
  • Describe what a half-life is.

Why Choose Time4Learning Tenth Grade Science Homeschool Curriculum
