What are we studying?

Physics is the study of how matter behaves. This course is designed to prepare students for an introductory college physics course which provides a launching pad for careers such as engineering, data analysis, and medical careers. Physics relies heavily on theories and experimentations that are highly quantitative to support conclusions. Accordingly, a foundational knowledge of algebra is required to succeed in this course. Students will need to apply content knowledge to laboratory procedures, laboratory safety measures, scientific thinking and reasoning, problem solving, and applications. Students will be expected to construct and judge the validity of a logical argument, demonstrate effective oral and listening skills and use technology in a responsible manner.

Throughout the year, we will touch on the following topics:

  • Mechanics
  • Kinematics
  • Energy
  • Waves and Light
  • Electricity and Magnetism
  • Modern Physics
