This introductory physics class requires a solid foundation in Algebra and a basic familiarity with scientific methods, the metric system, and trigonometry. The course is a survey of basic physics beginning with the study of mechanics and covers motion, forces, momentum, energy, and gravity. The course then moves into topics of electricity and magnetism while we explore forces that we cannot see, but exist all around us. We end the year by learning about simple harmonic motion, physical waves, sound, and light. This course will explore basic algebraic relationships found in nature and delve into conceptual physics through inquiry-based projects. Some examples of projects from last year include protecting an egg passenger in a car crash, shooting a projectile into a target, designing an electromagnet, and egg bungee jumping.
