Physics Honors

Course Number: 
Course Term: 

This course meets all graduation and university admission criteria for physical science.

Physics Honors is intended to prepare students interested in fields of study that could require them to take engineering level physics in college. Such students are expected to have strong skills in algebraic and trigonometric problem solving.

Like the other Physics courses, it provides an introduction to the fundamental principles of physics and how they apply to our daily lives. Theory will be understood through mathematical calculations and problem solving as well as thedevelopment of conceptual understanding. Mathematical problem solving utilizing second-year algebra, geometry, and trigonometry will be extensively applied throughout the course.

The Physics Honors class will cover the topics listed for the AP Physics I curriculum and could prepare students to take the AP Physics 1 exam as well as the SAT 2 Physics exam.
