Grades: 11-12. This course is designed to help students appreciate the world around them, enabling them to obtain information from the world by direct measurement and by applying the Laws of Nature (Physics), and allowing them to perform experiments and draw independent conclusions consistent with their physical environment. This course helps the student think and analyze problems in the real world while preparing students for a four-year college or university. The first year Physics course will cover measurement, vectors, kinematics, statics, dynamics, momentum, work, power, energy, thermodynamics, and heat. The application of the theory will be tested with applied mathematics.
