Grade Level:                                     9

Length:                                              1 year

Prerequisite:                                      Teacher recommendation and concurrent enrollment in a math class

Graduation:                                      Fulfills physical science requirement

College Prep:                                    Fulfills CSU/UC lab science requirement

Conceptual Physics is a one-year course designed to provide freshman students with a foundation in introductory physics. The course syllabus includes motion and forces, conservation of energy and momentum, heat and thermodynamics, waves, and electric & magnetic phenomena. The course in aligned with the CA state science framework (physics), and enrolled students will take the Physics STAR CST at the end of the year. At least 60% of the course will include “hands-on” activities and laboratory exercises. This course is a freshman-level UC-prep “d” lab-science course, and a recommendation from the middle-school science teacher is required.
