Ten Good Reasons To Take Physics
For most students taking a high school physics class is a challenge, but it’s well worth the effort for the following reasons:
Recommended Graphing Calculators
S 1 Credit
Prerequisite: Geometry, Trigonometry recommended
A general course exploring the basic principles of applied and theoretical physics. Mechanics, thermodynamics, light, sound, electricity, magnetism and nuclear physics are stressed in a laboratory-oriented physics class.
S 1 Credit
AP Physics 1: 1st Semester College Credit
AP Physics 2: 2nd Semester College Credit
AP Physics 1/2: 1st and 2nd Semester College Credit
Prerecquisites: SM 1 or Higher
These algebra-based physics course are the equivalent to a first-semester, second-semester, or one year college course.
AP Physics 1 covers Newtonian mechanics (including rotational dynamics and angular momentum); work, energy, and power; and mechanical waves and sound. It will also introduce electric circuits.
AP Physics 2 covers principles of fluids, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optics, and topics in modern physics.
