Physics, Conceptual


    Length of Course: One Year (Lab Science)

    Credit: 1.0 Credit

    Grade Placement: 11, 12

    Prerequisite: Chemistry, Conceptual Chemistry or DC recommendation/approval

    State Code: 03161A000

    Course Description: The conceptual physics course emphasizes the conceptual understanding of the physical universe. The course will explain the basic principles of physics but use less mathematical problem solving than the conventional physics course. Much of the student learning will take place with laboratory experimentation. Demonstrations will be used extensively to develop a better understanding of the principles. Concepts discussed in the course will include mechanics, waves, light, optics, electricity, magnetism, relativity, and energy. The course will be able to provide a general understanding of many topics in physics.
