The Physical Setting/Earth Science Core Curriculum is an elaboration of the science content of the MST Learning Standards. In addition to Standards 1, 2, 6 & 7, this course is expected to prepare students to understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical setting and recognize the historical development of ideas in science. The topics of Geology, Astronomy and Meteorology are addressed in three key ideas: principles of relative motion and perspective; the interaction among components of air, water and land; the characteristics and reactivity of matter.
