PHYSICS

 

Physics/Lab          Grades 10 – 12 
 
Prerequisites: Students should have completed geometry and be concurrently taking Algebra II
 
Through theory and laboratory practices, the student will learn the meaning of fundamental measurement, acquire these measurements and analyze their significance to a precise value. Physics is a course focused on the following core topics: motion and forces; energy and momentum; temperature and thermal energy transfer; electricity and magnetism; vibrations and waves; light and optics. Instruction focuses on developing student understanding that scientific knowledge is gained from observation of natural phenomena and experimentation. Students will design and conduct investigations guided by theory. They will also evaluate and communicate the results of those investigations according to accepted procedures.
