Physics Honors II

Physics Honors II is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. It is a full-year course oriented to prepare students for the study of physics in college and the AP exam in Physics. This course explores topics such as fluid statics and dynamics; thermodynamics with kinetic theory; PV diagrams and probability; electrostatics, electrical circuits with capacitors; magnetic fields; electromagnetism; physical and geometric optics; and quantum, atomic, and nuclear physics. This course requires hands-on laboratory work. Students practice solving problems, answering multiple-choice questions, and writing laboratory reports.

Prerequisites: Physics Honors I, and Pre-calculus
