Watch the Getting Started Lesson below to see how it works.



A 21st Century introductory chemistry and physics course designed to spark

interest in science while building a firm foundation for upper level science courses.



  • Introductory Physics and Chemistry course

  • Meets the new requirements for Physical Science 

  • Excellent preparation for Biology, Chemistry, & Physics
  • Usually taken in 8th or 9th Grade along with Algebra 1

  • Prerequisite: Students should have completed or be taking Algebra 1 along with this course.  



New Physical Science Requirements

Because the biological processes learned in biology are driven by chemical reactions, a good understanding of introductory chemistry is required to learn and understand biology.  In 2010, the colleges change the requirements for Physical Science and re-named it Integrated Physics & Chemistry. This course should now have one full semester of introductory chemistry and one full semester of introductory physics. It should not contain any Earth or space science concepts that water down the chemistry and physics required to fully understand and enjoy upper level science courses. Most colleges now require Integrated Physics and Chemistry before Biology. 






Lab Workbook 

During the video labs, the activity pages in the Lab Workbook is used to formulate a hypothesis, record data, make calculations, and evaluate results. A printable PDF is included with your course.  A hard copy, printed in color on 3 hole punched paper is available for those who do not want to print the 86 pages at home.  Purchase the Lab Workbook




Quarterly exams promote study habits similar to what a student should expect in college, where exams are given infrequently and cover a large amount of material. To give the student adequate time to study, there are no assignments during the week of the exam. If you would like a Pre-AP course, we recommend giving the exams with a "review sheet" and a one hour time limit. If you prefer a regular high school course, do the exam "open note". At this level we like the "review sheet" method because it best teaches students how to prioritize and organize the information, providing an easier transition from weekly to quarterly exams. Exams are interactive and feature auto-grading and grade recording. 
While our program is very comprehensive and includes video solutions to all worksheet and lab exercises, occasionally a little extra help is needed. Students and parents can email Dr. Shormann directly anytime they have a question concerning the course. Emails are answered within one business day.  



Credits Earned: 1 Credit of Integrated Physics & Chemistry with Lab
Designed for use as an honors or standard course, DIVE Integrated Physics & Chemistry teaches all the topics for the new requirement including Science and Christianity, measurement of matter, atoms, the Periodic Table, nuclear chemistry, chemical bonds and reactions, acids and bases, Newton’s laws, work and simple machines, gases and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, and light. Based on the scientific method, the video labs have many fun, engaging activities that draw students in and inspire them to learn more. Scroll down to view the full scope and sequence.


Upon completion of DIVE ICP, students will be adept at working with the scientific method, developing lab skills that are above and beyond most of their peers. They will understand the importance of the energy sources used to power our world. Most importantly, students will have a better understanding of the laws God has woven into Creation. They will gain an appreciation for the rich Christian heritage that exists in science.With special emphasis on men like Isaac Newton and Michael Faraday, students will understand the importance of studying His Word and His Works as they seek to become good stewards of His creation.
Self-Paced eLearning Course vs CD-ROM
This self-paced eLearning course offers several advantages over the CD version.
  • All homework, quizzes, and quarterly exams are automatically graded and the grades are stored in an online gradebook.
  • There is no CD to lose or damage.
  • Use on almost all computers, tablets, and devices
Although this is a 32 week course, the eLearning course subscription is 12 months, providing more than enough time for parent/teacher planning, illness, and vacations. However, if more time is needed, a 12 month renewal can be purchased for $20. Each sibling can take the course for a renewal fee of $20. Learn More

  1. Great Science program!

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Jan 2023

    My 14 year old daughter was really struggling with another popular physical science program. We switched about 6 weeks in to the Dive Chemistry/Physics program. It has worked very well for us. Love the video and lab components.

  2. Best Chemistry and Physics course I've ever done!

    Posted by Christopher Sirard on 9th Dec 2022

    I just want to say thank you so much, Dr. Shormann, for making such a great Chemistry and Physics course. I'm really enjoying it. And almost all my notebook is filled with Chemistry and Physics notes!
    It's super easy to use the course. And Dr. Shormann teaches it so well that I've never gotten a grade below 90 (or below an A)!
    And one of the things I love about it is that it teaches chemistry and physics from a Christian view instead of a worldly (/secular) perspective.
    Thanks again, Dr. Shormann, for making such a great, easy, and fun Christian course on Chemistry and Physics.


  3. The BEST science/math classes!!! I couldn’t be happier!!!

    Posted by Sarah B. on 24th Jun 2022

    As background information, my students have been raised with Apologia Young Explorers science and Math U See Math (we have enjoyed both programs). For 8th grade, I like to enroll each student I have in Dr. Shormann’s Integrated Chemistry/Physics AND Algebra I/Geometry simultaneously. I want my students to have a year before high school to grow accustomed to navigating a high quality online class, taking notes, studying for science exams, participating in labs, etc. I’ve now had two students take Dr. Shormann’s classes. Both have been appropriately challenged and have also fared well. I’m so pleased. We will definitely take as many D.I.V.E. Online science courses as we can for high school; these classes carry TREMENDOUS VALUE, especially considering the quality of this instructor. Even my skeptical students appreciate Dr. Shormann. They respect him as a teacher and as a person. My husband and I listen in sometimes and are always impressed. Dr. Shormann makes connections for my students that I could not contribute if I was the teacher of these subjects. I’m so grateful for a Christian man, Dr. Shormann, who is a scientist and mathematician and an excellent teacher, to instruct my students in math and science. I couldn’t be happier. My eldest has gone on to enjoy Dr. Shormann’s biology course this year. Everyone should have Dr. Shormann for a science/math teacher!!!

  4. Great course!

    Posted by Mary on 21st Sep 2021

    My kids are learning so much in this course! I love that the siblings courses are discounted, that truly helps for big families! Lots of great lectures and labs! Wonderful course!

  5. Perfect fit!

    Posted by Jill on 2nd Jan 2021

    The set up of this course is a perfect fit for us. It is easy to use and my son is learning a lot!

  6. Good Self-Paced Course

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Nov 2020

    My daughter enjoys this class and likes that it is laid out in a very easy to follow format. She feels that the lectures and labs are very detailed which is helpful. Her only minor issue is that sometimes she gets into a lab and finds out that something is needed that wasn't listed on the supplies sheet. As a parent I like that the review questions and tests are graded for me. I sit with my daughter for the labs, and they are enjoyable for both of us. I highly recommend this course.

  7. 4th Time using this Perfect High School Science

    Posted by Bobbi H. on 10th Dec 2019

    I have used this combo chemistry and physics for all 4 of my kids! It covers the basics for both of these physical sciences, giving them a great foundation. My oldest 2 did not pursue science or engineering, so they did not need advanced courses in these subjects. They took biology and geology at a local college and scored A's. They were well prepared for the rigor of the more advanced science. It also looked very well rounded on their transcripts to have chemistry, physics, biology and then physical geology. They both got into very competative colleges with scholarships. AND I LOVE THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW!! Great conversations ensued from doing this at our kitchen counter. (I recommend doing some labs hands on...very fun!)

  8. great curriculum

    Posted by Unknown on 6th Nov 2019

    So far so good. Obviously, we are only halfway through the year, but it's very thought out and organized. It seems also very thorough. Online courses are often very expensive and these are so reasonably priced which I am so thankful for.

  9. Excellent for my dyslexic student!

    Posted by Cathy on 31st Mar 2019

    DIVE Integrated Chemistry & Physics has proven to be an excellent program for my daughter, who has dyslexia. She learns best using multi-sensory approaches, so video educational products are excellent for her. Dr. Shormann is easy to understand and he has written a workbook for assignments and labs that is a thorough coverage of the material. His labs make you feel like you're right there with him, which works great for those who can't afford the lab materials. His requirements are clear, and I appreciate that he allows the consumer the ability to print the workbook and glossary on our own.

  10. Great Curriculum

    Posted by Rachel A on 10th Dec 2017

    My daughter is working through this ICP course right now. This is the first time that she has taken her own notes for class. She is doing excellent. She enjoys the videos and the labs. I personally think that an actual video of the lab portion would be much more beneficial compared to just pictures, but she doesn't seem to mind. Also, the computerized interactive labs are very fun and interesting for her to learn from. I also like that she can contact Dr. Shormann with question instead of from me. As much as I am involved in what she is doing, I don't really understand everything about this curriculum. It's nice to have a teacher other than me explaining what she needs to do. Thank you!
