Corequisite: Advanced Calculus or Accelerated Calculus or beyond
This fast-paced, mathematically rigorous college-level introduction to physics is intended for students likely to pursue college science or engineering. Students study classical mechanics, the analysis of motion, Newton’s laws, projectiles, momentum, friction, springs, energy, gravity, and rotational motion. Students demonstrate their understanding by making predictions, solving problems, and performing labs. Labs occur every two weeks and emphasize finding and analyzing patterns in data. Students will apply the concepts of derivatives and integrals where applicable.
