From the Instructor

 

My goal is to make physics interesting and digestible for all students. I incorporate hands-on learning, and I strive
to ensure my classes are fun and exciting while maintaining the rigor parents and students expect from a physics
class. Honors Physics will incorporate math; however, this course is not calculus-based. This class is designed to be
accessible to any student who is interested in how the world works.


Honors Physics is taught from a Christian worldview.

Course Description

This course introduces students to the foundational science: physics. In this class, we will use observation,
experimentation, and reason to explore the fundamental theories and laws that explain how the world works.
Honors Physics meets in-person one time each week; additionally, students will have access to video lessons
between classes. Students will be expected to complete approximately 2-3 hours of homework each week
between classes. We will cover an array of topics, including:

  • Newton's Laws of Motion

  • Energy and Momentum

  • Projectiles

  • Forms of Matter

  • Thermodynamics

  • Sound

  • Wave Physics

  • Electromagnetism

  • Atomic Physics

  • Light and Radiation

  • Space Physics

  • Relativity

Times and Locations

 

Honors Physics is scheduled to meet at Randall University in Moore each Wednesday 10:00-11:30 and in Edmond
(location TBD) each Wednesday 1:00-2:30. Classes begin the week of August 22 and end on the week of April 24.
Times and locations are subject to change. All deposits are fully refundable if the time or location changes or if
the class does not meet the 8-student minimum threshold.
