Physics (lab)

Dr. Sara Zacher

Physics describes the most fundamental rules that govern creation, and learning these rules opens up a whole new and exciting way to understand the most common of experiences. This rigorous course covers a wide range of physics topics, including Newtonian mechanics, rotational motion and gravitation, atomic theory, and states of matter in the first semseter; and thermodynamics, wave motion, light, magnetism and electric currents in the second semster; with each topic explored using hands-on labs. You will be surprised at how much more there is to understand about the most simple things in the world around you! (Algebra I prerequisite, Algebra II co-requisite)
