Course title

Physics 1-2


Junior or Senior with successful completion of Chemistry 1-2 & Concurrent enrollment in Algebra 3-4 or higher

Course description

In this online course; students will learn physics concepts; including matter and energy; motion and force; speed; velocity; and acceleration in order to better understand how the universe behaves. A survey of the historical development of physics as a foundational branch of science will lead to recognition of the contributions of Newton; Einstein; Planck; and others. Students will apply physics concepts as they study gravity and acceleration; momentum; motion; and energy. The concepts of work and power will become evident as students learn how machines use torque and force to accomplish work. Students will recognize the roles of each fundamental force and will investigate electrostatics; thermodynamics; wave forms; particles; and quantum physics. Following an examination of the nucleus; radioactivity; fission; and fusion; the course concludes with the theories of special and general relativity. Throughout the course; there are lab investigations; including video labs; to reinforce science concepts and skills.
