Prerequisites: Algebra 1

Grades: 11

Credit: 10 Credits

This course is an advanced level of science education for the college bound student who has already demonstrated strong interests and above average academic ability in mathematics and other science subjects. Students must have completed algebra II in order to take this course. The honor physics course is a challenging course and will prepare the student with strong problem-solving skills. In addition, scientific graphing techniques, vector operations, trigonometry, and preliminary calculus will be integrated throughout this course. Topics include one- and two- dimensional kinematics, laws of motion, energy, circular motion, hydrostatics, heat, electromagnetism, and light. Considerable laboratory investigations are also included in this course with a hope that students appreciate the laws in the universe around us and enjoy this class.
