The purpose of this laboratory-based class is to provide the student with an introductory knowledge of physics, an understanding of the ongoing scientific conversation of mankind, and a better understanding of the fundamental forces that God designed for the universe. It emphasizes problem solving using vector analysis and is designed for the student who has completed Algebra 1 and understands basic trigonometry. Physics is a mandatory science for graduation for graduates in 2016 and 2017. For graduates of 2018 and beyond, this will no longer be a required science.
