A hands on approach to applied physics that will prepare students for further education in technical schools. This course may be used for science credit or vocational credit.
Students will be introduced to:
Mechanical Systems: and how they apply to construction and automotive trades
Fluid Systems: and how they apply to aerodynamics in boats and aeronautics
Electrical Systems: and how they apply to construction, motors and generators
Students will be expected to:
Students should have passed foundations of science.
Students will be given access to texts, computers, and all lab equipment needed to excel in applied physics.
Grades are determined as a straight percentage of points from homework, labs, and tests.
