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:

  1. Most modern technology involves physics.
  2. An understanding of physics leads to a better understanding of almost any other science.
  3. Physics classes help polish the skills needed to score well on the ACT and SAT.
  4. College recruiters recognize the value of physics classes.
  5. College success for virtually all science, computing, engineering, and premedical majors depends in part on passing physics.
  6. Physics classes hone thinking skills.
  7. The job market for people with skills in physics is strong.
  8. Knowledge of physics is helpful for understanding the arts.
  9. To understand physics is to better understand politics, history, and culture.
  10. Physics offers a deep and unique perspective in itself: There is quite simply no other area of study quite like it.

Recommended Graphing Calculators

  • I realize graphing calculators can be expensive, however you are making an investment in your future.
  • By choosing from the AP college list of recommended calculators, you are purchasing a calculator that you will use through high school and college.
  • The following link lists graphing calculators permitted on AP math and science exams, http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/calculus_ab/calc.html?calcab#list
  • My personal favorite is the TI-84 Plus.
