Physics

Physics 20 - 5 credits

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Science 10
Recommendation for Success: 60% in Science 10 overall and 60% in the Physics unit of Science 10. At least 60% in Math 10 Common is recommended. Completion of or concurrent registration in Math 20-1 is recommended.
Physics is the study of matter and energy and their interactions. Through a study of physics, an opportunity is given to explore and understand the natural physical world and to become aware of the influence of physics on our lives. Topics include: kinematics, dynamics, periodic motion and conservation of energy. Skills in algebraic problem solving, tabling and graphing data are used throughout the course. Success in this course depends on strong math and communication skills.

Physics 30 - 5 credits

Prerequisite: Successful completion of Physics 20
Recommendations for Success: 60% in Physics 20. Greater than 60% in Math 20-1 is recommended.
This is a continuation of the study of Physics concepts, with the addition of more abstract topics. It emphasizes conservation laws (especially momentum and energy), electricity and magnetism, field theory, electromagnetic induction and waves, models of the atom, wave-particle duality and radioactivity. Algebraic problem solving, tabling, graphing and writing skills are used throughout this course. Strong math and communication skills are required. A diploma exam is written upon completion of this course.
