Physics is the study of energy and matter and how they are related. The goal of this high school-level physics course is to provide a better understanding of the physical world. Students will learn about motion, forces, momentum, energy, electricity, waves, and many other physical phenomena. The course will have a special emphasis on discovery through experiential learning. Students will have regular and frequent opportunities to learn through lab activities, online simulations, and scientific investigation. Students will be assessed through quizzes, lab reports, homework, and classwork. Students will need familiarity with algebra and basic trigonometry.
