Physics. Honors Physics is a rigorous course, equivalent to a first semester college physics course. This course will focus on concepts and problem solving. Topics covered include: motion, vectors, forces, work, energy, power, momentum and DC circuits. Students will spend approximately 25% of the class time doing hands-on work in the physics lab and will work with partners to design labs to accomplish objectives. They will record their procedures, data, analysis and summary in a lab notebook. In addition, they will write one lab report each semester and a minimum of one research paper/presentation during the school year.


Pre-requisite: 90% in Honors Chemistry AND 90% in HN Algebra I.
