School year 2019-2020
Physics is an algebra-based, introductory physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of Physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore topics such as Kinematics, Newtonian mechanics, work, energy, and power; Impulse, momentum, and collisions; mechanical waves and sound; and introductory, simple circuits.
Below is summary of the topics that we will cover this year. As we progress through the year, these will be updated and modified.
