Bryan Sadler became interested in Math and the Physical Sciences after taking Chemistry from an excellent teacher his sophomore year of high school.

Mr. Sadler realized he wanted to teach after his third year of college. Since then, God has been gracious to provide him opportunities to teach, and has led him to Cornerstone, where he is excited to share about the incredible world God has made.

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep.

CHEMISTRY

This is a college preparatory laboratory course which builds on the introduction of biochemistry in biology. Emphasis will be placed on atomic and molecular structure, mathematical problem-solving, the periodic table, stoichiometry, chemical bonding, acid-base chemistry and reduction/oxidation reaction.

 

 

CONCEPTUAL PHYSICS

The focus of this course is on the concepts of Physics, explaining how physical phenomena occur. Concepts are presented in a practical format, with equations as “guides to thinking.” The various laws of physics will be explored and explained as the basis for various physical interactions such as gravity, energy, heat, forces, velocity, momentum, etc.
