Honors Physics

Credits: 1

Prerequisites: honors grades in math and chemistry, enrolled in Honors Precalculus, and teacher



The course moves at a faster pace than Physics and covers the following material in depth: classical mechanics including kinematics (the description of motion in one and two dimensions), dynamics (the causes of motion, Newton’s laws of motion), and the conservation laws (energy and momentum). In addition, we study topics selected from statics, waves, sound, and light. Several projects through the year integrate the physics principles studied with engineering and technology to achieve a deeper understanding of the topics.
