Prerequisite: Completed or be enrolled in Algebra II

Conceptual Physics is a year long non-calculus approach to the principles of general physics. Emphasis is placed on inquiry-based learning. Students will be expected to develop inquiry and reasoning skills, such as designing a plan for collecting data, analyzing data, and interpreting data. The first semester (fall) covers Newtonian mechanics, properties of matter, sound, and light with the second semester (spring) covering electrostatics, electric circuits, magnetism, and electromagnetic induction. While the concepts behind physical phenomena will be the focus of this course, students will apply mathematical concepts from algebra and geometry in order to problem solve.
