PHYSICS, Advanced Placement
Prerequisite: Students should have completed Algebra II/Trig or an equivalent mathematics course.
AP Physics is an algebra-based, introductory college-level physics course. Students cultivate their understanding of physics through inquiry-based investigations as they explore these topics: kinematics; dynamics; circular motion and gravitation; energy; momentum; simple harmonic motion; torque and rotational motion; electric charge and electric force; DC circuits; and mechanical waves and sound. Students will also explore concepts through scientific readings, demonstrations, lectures, and practice problem activities. Fees: Optional AP Exam Fee (Approx. $100.00)
Theory of Action
The goal of science education at EHS is to engage our students through student choice. Each course is designed to encourage scientific literacy and critical thinking through relevant topics and authentic experiences in the lab and classroom.
