FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS
Ninth GradeCredit - 1
Conceptual Physics is an introductory science course for students whose previous experiences in science and mathematics have not prepared them for the regular Freshman Physics course. The course is designed to minimize the entering mathematics requirements and is intended to build the science and mathematics skills of the students in order to help them better function in the remainder of the high school science sequence. Students will develop major concepts in motion, forces, energy, electricity, and wave motion. Students will learn to build scientific models to describe the physical world by analyzing the results of laboratory experiments. The skills of experimental design, data collection and graphical analysis will be emphasized, allowing students to express these models verbally, diagrammatically, graphically and algebraically. Enrollment requires faculty recommendation.
