Practice Final Exams

For practice before taking the Physical Science Final Exam, take a look at these old exams:
Interactive Periodic Table (Click here!)

As we learn about the properties of matter and the periodic table, you may find that an interactive periodic table may be helpful! Remember that you can also use and take notes within the periodic table within the Reference Table for the course!

What should I do to prepare for the Final Exam?

  • Secure a quiet place that you will be able to sit and work on your Final Exam for a couple hours without interruption or distractions. You may take the Final Exam from home.
  • Make sure you have your notebook organized because you may use your notes.
  • Make sure you have a copy of the Reference Table ready for your reference.
  • Make sure you have completed all make up work in the course!
  • Use the Pre-Assessments as Practice Tests since the Post Assessments can not be used. Also, look over previous Notes Quizzes.
  • Eat breakfast, lunch or a snack and have some water on hand to keep your brain nourished!
  • Give your best efforts--remember, the Final Exam is 25% of your grade!
  • Celebrate that you have reached the end of a semester of hard work!

Semester Timeline

Please be sure to look at the semester pacing below. All students should be working to get on pace as soon as possible--remember, assignments lost 10 points for each week that they are submitted late. Also, the next module will not open until the previous module is completed.
