    Honors Freshman Physics is an introductory course to a formal study of the physical sciences, with emphasis on mathematical problem solving. 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 in words, in diagrams, graphically and algebraically. This course moves at an accelerated pace and it requires excellent reasoning skills and well-developed work and study habits. Fluency in the application of algebra is essential. Students will build a laboratory portfolio, which includes results of each of the major investigations throughout the year. Enrollment requires faculty recommendation.
