We will work through the labs and have the opportunity to discuss principles and ideas of physics. Students will be required to work through textbook modules at home so they will be ready to do labs and submit monthly lab reports. Since this is a college prep course, emphasis will be on completing labs as outlined on the syllabus. Outside class help is available if needed.
Students must submit all labs using required electronic format (access to computer). See the syllabus for further details. The last page of the syllabus must be parent and student-signed by the first class and returned to indicate agreement.
Algebra and basic trigonometry (Sin, Cos, Tan relationship of triangles) are required prerequisite skills. Students are required to submit parent-signed chapter tests in order to receive a grade for this lab course.
