General Class information and expectations

     Physics:  Students study a variety of topics that includes the laws of motion; changes within physical systems; conservation of  momentum and energy; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear and quantum physics. (Minimum 40% lab)
PR: Biology; Algebra I and concurrent enrollment in a second math course)

Online Textbook:    Physics – Principles & Problems; by Zitzewitz, Haase, Harper, & Kilgo.  http://connected.mcgraw-hill.com/

     AP Physics 2:  This revised AP Physics 2 course may be taken after Physics 1. Physics 2 is organized around the same seven topics as Physics 1, but builds on the mechanical focus of the first course. Physics 2 focuses on more advanced topics such as field theory and quantum physics. This course includes the lab science practices designated by the College Board.
Students will prepare to take the AP Physics 2 exam in May.
PR: Biology, Chemistry, and Physics 1; Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II.
