742A Physics A Level 4 0.5 Credit Semester One
This class is a conceptual exploration of physics. Although mathematics is a necessary tool, math is not emphasized. The topics covered are similar to the L5 physics but the depth of exploration is more exploratory and less mathematical. Topics covered include vectors, motion, projectiles, Newton’s Laws, momentum, energy, circular motion, torque, rotational mechanics, and center of gravity.

Prerequisites: Completion of Geometry.


742B Physics B Level 4 0.5 Credit Semester Two

This class is a conceptual exploration of physics. Although mathematics is a necessary tool, math is not emphasized. The topics covered are similar to the L5 physics but the depth of exploration is more exploratory and less mathematical. This class covers universal gravitation, sound, vibrations, waves, electrostatics, electric fields and potential, electric current, electric circuits, magnetism and rocketry.

Prerequisites: Completion of Physics A L4.
