SELC Physics Honors 173
This laboratory course is the first science course in the four year Science and Engineering Learning Community science sequence. While students will investigate all major topics in a comprehensive first year physics course–optics, wave motion, Newton’s laws of motion, conservation energy, momentum and electricity–they will do so through an integrated approach with their concurrent PLTW Introduction to Engineering Design 173 course. While this class will present them with questions about how nature works, students will find answers to these questions as they apply the laws of physics to solve real-life engineering problems in both courses. Students taking this course have been admitted to the Science and Engineering Learning Community and will continue with SELC Chemistry Honors 173 and the PLTW Principles of Engineering 273 during their sophomore year. This course fulfills the science graduation requirement.
