Grades 11th – 12th

Students will learn Physics using the text: Exploring Creation with Physics by Dr. Jay Wile. The class will cover a chapter of the text approximately every two weeks. Students will be instructed through lecture, activities and laboratory experiments. These experiments will be designed to encourage students to apply their knowledge in ways that are creative and challenging. Due to the heavy amount of math, students must have a basis of Algebra and be familiar with sine, cosine and tangent. Students will be expected to write lab reports based on experiments performed in class. Tests will be taken at home in order to preserve class time for hands on activities. Students will also need a marble-style composition book and a scientific calculator. This class is worth 1 credit.
