Physics 11

Physics is a fundamental science that strives to describe the most basic elements of nature.  Through inquiry and problem solving, students survey major themes of Physics such as:  kinematics – how things move;  dynamics – why things move;  energy – kinetic, potential, thermal, and nuclear. This course also explores electric circuits as well as waves – sound and light.  Of all the senior science courses offered, Physics is the most reliant on strong mathematical skills.
