Physics is the study of nature and characteristics of energy and emphasizes a more complex understanding of experimentation, the analysis of data, and the use of reasoning and logic to evaluate evidence. Conceptual understanding of physical systems is the primary focus of this course. In order to arrive at this understanding, students will need to draw upon their knowledge of algebra inferential statistics and trigonometry. Emphasis will be given to the study of forces and motion, energy transformations, wave phenomena, the electromagnetic spectrum, light, electricity fields and NON-Newtonian physics. Practical application and problem-solving are stressed throughout the course. Graphing calculators and computers are employed as tools of study. There is no SOL test for this course.
