This course covers the study of wave motion, (both transverse and longitudinal). Particular focus on waves will be in the area of sound, the electromagnetic spectrum, visible light, and electricity. Major projects include a PowerPoint show, and physics magic tricks.
There is no math prerequisite for either of the topics classes.
While Topics A is at an easier level than Waves and Light, students who take Topics A cannot take Waves and Light- they are too similar.
