Course title

Physics 1



Course description

In this course; students will be immersed in the contributions of scientific geniuses that have changed the way we observe and think about matter; forces; and energy in the universe. Starting with how matter moves; students will learn that all motion can be described; analyzed; and predicted. Then students will explore the causes of changing motion; forces! Energy is a fundamental property essential to human existence; and physics will take students through all the forms of it: electricity; light; sound; heat; and more. Discover how waves travel and interact with matter and the smallest particles in the universe. From tiny atoms to galaxies with millions of stars; the universal laws of physics are explained through real-world examples. Through laboratory activities; simulations; and graphical analysis; combined with rigorous mathematical efforts and problem solving; students follow in the footsteps of some of the world's greatest thinkers and learn to process their world in a unique way.
