This is the second semester in a two-semester course sequence. This course covers the second semester of high school physics. Lessons require use of the skills mastered in the first semester of this two-semester course. Topics of study include waves, heat, electricity and magnetism. The study of light will concentrate on reflection, refraction, and lenses, while electricity will contain the subtopics of static electricity (Coulomb’s Law), current flow using Ohm’s Law and series and parallel circuit design, and capacitors. A working knowledge of algebra and geometry will aid the student at being successful in physics!
