Physics is an advanced-level science class that satisfies the high school graduation requirement of a physical science class. Students should have successfully completed both Biology and Algebra I before enrolling in this course. The Physics curriculum is designed to continue student investigations of the physical sciences that began in grades K-8 and provide students the necessary skills to be proficient in physics. Students cultivate their understanding of physics through classroom study, in-class activity, and hands-on, inquiry-based laboratory work as they explore and investigate more abstract concepts like systems, fields, interactions of matter and energy, velocity, acceleration, force, energy, momentum, and waves. Students will be challenged to apply their knowledge of the laws of physics to solve physics related critical thinking problems. Students will complete 1-2 projects each nine week grading period and are required to take the Cobb County Student Growth Measure (SGM) standardized exam at the beginning and end of the course.
