College Prep Physics is taught as a 9th grade course.
My primary goals for this course are:
- to foster an active learning environment,
- to balance qualitative reasoning and conceptual understanding with quantitative reasoning and problem solving and,
- to develop an understanding and appreciation of fundamental physics concepts as they apply to everyday life.
The course covers selected topics from Mechanics, Waves, Optics,
Electricity and Magnetism.
