Physics is a course to provide a background necessary for college-bound students, especially those interested in science, engineering, or pre-med areas. It gives students an understanding of major concepts of physics in a laboratory setting. Physics Modeling Instruction is the curriculum we will follow, where students will actively construct conceptual and mathematical models in an interactive learning community. Topics include: forces, motion, electricity and various storage modes and transfer mechanisms of energy. This course meets the Physics/Chemistry credit requirement for graduation.
