Foundations of Physics

Foundations of Physics is a one-semester introduction to physics intended to cover all of the physics proficiency standards required for graduation from CHRHS.  This course provides a conceptual introduction to the most important physics concepts.  Content is learned and practiced through hands-on activities, with a focus on how physics concepts relate to the “real-world.” The focus of the course will be energy, including studies of topics related to electrical energy, solar energy, kinetic energy, and elastic energy. This course does not meet the requirements of a “lab science credit” as defined by colleges and universities.
