Honors Physics I

Prerequisites: B- average in Honors Algebra II or A- average in Algebra II; enrollment in Pre-Calculus or have taken it previously.

Honors Physics I is a course in which students synthesize the fundamental concepts and principles related to matter and energy, including mechanics, wave motion, heat, light, electricity, magnetism, atomic and subatomic physics.  Through regular laboratory study using such quantities as velocity, acceleration, force, energy, momentum, and charge, students (1) examine the nature and scope of physics, including its relationship to other sciences and its ability to describe phenomena using physical laws, (2) describe the history of physics and its role in the birth of technology, (3) explore the uses of its models, theories, and laws in various careers, and (4) investigate physics questions and problems related to personal needs and societal issues. A GRAPHING CALCULATOR IS REQUIRED FOR THIS COURSE.
