This lab-based course will further build upon students’ understanding of the physical sciences. Students in Physics will focus on the key concepts of forces and their interactions, forms of energy, currents, and circuits, as well as waves and their applications. Students will demonstrate their understanding of these key concepts through the use of science and engineering practices. Academic Physics is a college-preparatory course that will deepen students’ ability to plan, conduct, and evaluate investigations, develop and use models, interpret and analyze data, and construct evidence-based explanations.
