PHYSICS 11
Physics 11 is an introductory course which covers the Topics of kinematics, free fall with gravity, dynamics, work, energy, momentum, power, circuitry, and relativity. It is strongly recommended that Pre-Calculus Math 11 be taken prior to or concurrently. Students who have weak Algebra skills may wish to take Physics 11 in their Grade 12 year.

Recommendation: SC 10 (C+ or better), Pre-Calc Math 10 (C+ or better)


PHYSICS 12
This course is a survey of physics for those students requiring physics for post-secondary studies. The following topics are studied: Vectors, 2D kinematics, dynamics, energy and momentum, static equilibrium, circular motion, electrostatics, and electromagnetism. The course will be easier for those students with a good mathematical sense and a solid foundation in algebra and trigonometry. Students are expected to develop skills in problem solving and in collection, analysis and reporting of experimental results. It is strongly recommended that Pre-Calculus Math 12 be taken concurrently.

Recommendation: PH 11 (C+ or better), Pre-Calc Math 11
(C+ or better)
