Physics 12 explores the world of motion and fields. It is designed to build on the knowledge the student gained in physics 11.
The course focuses on four big ideas. Measurements of motion depends on our frame of reference. Forces can cause linear and circular motion. Momentum is conserved within a closed isolated system. Forces and energy interactions occur within fields.
Physics 12 emphasizes real-life applications and helps students connect their learning to the world around them. Several virtual labs and one hands-on home learning activity deepens student understanding of content and scaffold important lab writing skills.
Physics 11 should be taken prior to physics 12 to ensure all necessary skills are developed.
