Grades 11-12 two semesters- one science credit
Introduction to fundamental concepts of modern physics: measurement of time and space, motion, mass, forces, energy, work, momentum, wave mechanics, electricity, magnetism, and nuclear physics.
Laboratory experiences will help convey some understanding of how scientists work as well as developing concepts of physics.
introduce the technology of physics as a purposeful mode of inquiry
show how physical knowledge is acquired experimentally and woven into physical theory
apply the physical theory learned to the solution of problems and to understand today’s technology
