PHYSICS
Grade level: 11th -12th
Pre-requisites: Must have completed Algebra II. A basic knowledge of sine, cosine and tangent are beneficial but not required.

This 30 week college-prep physics course provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics. The students will achieve a solid background in one-dimensional and two-dimensional motion, Newton’s laws and their application, gravity, work and energy, momentum, periodic motion, waves, optics, electrostatics, electrodynamics, electrical circuits, and magnetism. The emphasis on vector analysis will be ideal preparation for a college-level physics course.
This class will be taught using discovery methods, problem-solving, and weekly lab activities. It is my goal to facilitate the exploration of physics with a spirit of cooperation and enthusiasm.
