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)).

Using Logical Reasoning to Prove Conjectures about Circles

Given conjectures about circles, the student will use deductive reasoning and counterexamples to prove or disprove the conjectures.

###
Creating Nets for Three-Dimensional Figures

Given nets for three-dimensional figures, the student will apply the formulas for the total and lateral surface area of three-dimensional figures to solve problems using appropriate units of measure.

###
Drawing Conclusions about Three-Dimensional Figures from Nets

Given a net for a three-dimensional figure, the student will make conjectures and draw conclusions about the three-dimensional figure formed by the given net.

###
Generalizing Geometric Properties of Ratios in Similar Figures

Students will investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships and apply the definition of similarity, in terms of a dilation, to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and congruent corresponding angles.
