Honors conceptual physics is a two-semester, laboratory-based physical science course - emphasizing physics in a low-mathematical context students will study fundamental concepts of science such as si metric system, mechanics, forces, work and energy, optics, electricity and magnetism. Unit 1 - scientific tools and measurement in this review unit, students will review lab procedures, precision and uncertainty of tools, accuracy and precision, significant digits, unit conversions, and graphical analysis of data. The full electricity and magnetism unit will be piloted during the spring trimester of 2007 in both sections of honors conceptual physics, with selected aspects featured in the senior-level physics and ap physics courses.
Laboratory course in conceptual physics topics covered will include: mechanics, sound, electricity and magnetism, light and modern physics intended primarily for non-science majors.
