Physics I Curriculum at a Glance

This course focuses on the relationship between force, motion, and energy.  It is divided into 5 units of study – “Kinematics,” “Dynamics,” “Conservation of Energy and Momentum,” and “Static Equilibrium.”   All content will be taught with an emphasis on combining knowledge with critical thinking to ask questions about phenomena and propose explanations based on evidence.  Inquiry activities will be conducted throughout the course on various topics to help students expand their critical thinking skills and develop problem solving techniques.  Students will also be asked to develop and apply their math skills throughout the course as we explore the many relationships between physical quantities.
