High School Physics with lab

$650 per semester, $1300 annually

This is fulfills the "d" requirement for A-G students at Ocean Grove. 

Throughout the course of the year, the students gain an appreciation of the Laws of Nature (Physics) by engaging in experiments and relating experimental data to physical science concepts. In this one-year course, students will cover measurement, vectors, Laws of Motion, work and energy, momentum and collisions, circular motion, gravitation, heat, thermodynamics, waves, sound, light, refraction, electrical energy, and current, circuits and magnetism, and atomic physics. The general objective of this course is to provide a clear conceptual development and practice with both fundamental physics concepts and problem-solving skills. Students will develop abilities necessary to meet the following learning outcomes: understand the scientific inquiry, build an understanding of linear motion and two-dimensional motion including circular motion, develop an understanding of forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion, and describe and apply concepts of impulse and momentum, develop an understanding of energy as the ability to cause change, describe wave motion and the wave nature of sound and light, express an understanding of static electricity and direct current electrical circuits.
