To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
6 Chapter 3: Kinematics
In this chapter, we analyze the motion of constantly accelerated objects over time in terms of displacement, velocity, and acceleration.
5 Chapter 6: Waves
In this chapter, we explore the mathematical concept of a wave and show how this concept can be used to accurately describe and predict many natural phenomena.
3 Chapter 7: Static Electricity
In this chapter, we explore how electrically charged particles interact through electrostatic forces and fields.
3 Chapter 1: Nature of Science and Scientific Ethics
In this chapter, we explore the nature of science itself, including its practice, ethics, and impact.
5 Chapter 2: Tools of Physics
In this chapter, we discuss several ideas and tools that will be helpful in our introductory study of physics.
5 Chapter 4: Newton's Laws and Momentum
In this chapter, we introduce Newton's laws, and then explore the concepts of momentum and conservation of momentum.
7 Chapter 5: Conservation of Energy and Gravitation
In this chapter, we explore a formulation of classical physics in the context of energy rather than force, and we explore the concept of gravitation in more universally applicable detail.
5 Chapter 8: Circuits and Magnetism
In this chapter, students will learn introductory concepts surrounding electricity and magnetism.
7 Chapter 9: Special Topics
In this chapter, we present several special topics that may arise in the study of physics.
6 Chapter 10: Equipment and Experiments
In this chapter, we demonstrate the use of various laboratory equipment.
Study Edge Physics
In Physics, students will conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: laws of motion; changes within physical systems and conservation of energy and momentum; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. Students who successfully complete Physics will acquire factual knowledge within a conceptual framework, practice experimental design and interpretation, work collaboratively with colleagues, and develop critical thinking skills (TAC §112.39(b)(1)).
