Physics seeks to describe and predict natural events by seeking the relationships between motion, force, energy and time. Physics is at the root of all types of engineering. This course will discuss the basics in fields of physics such as kinematics, dynamics, electricity, optics, and nuclear physics. The number one priority is to learn how to think critically, in a scientific manner, about the physical environment. Students will learn physics by behaving like physicists. The course is designed to combine the best of high school Conceptual Physics and Honors Physics and assume students have the basic knowledge of Algebra such as ratio, percentage, linear equations, and occasionally quadratic equations. Knowledge of geometry is optional.
