Course Description:

Grade 12 Physics is designed for students who are interested an advanced physics course, bu
t did
not take the Pre
-
AP/AP Calculus course. The academic topics covered in this physics course
include: Review of Newtonian Mechanics, Electricity, Magnetism, Modern Physics, Thermodynamics,
Optics, Quantum Mechanics, Particle and Nuclear Physics, Astro
nomy/Cosmology. This course is
designed to follow up the theory learned in the Physics 11 but at a college level. In the second
semester, we will utilize college level lectures to explore the Physics of the last century to date. We
will also spend time p
reparing for the SAT II Physics exam, AP Physics B exam and the Tec
Ubicacion Physics exam in this course.

Grading Policies and Practices:


Grades earned during the semester, prior to the semester exam, will be based upon the content
grading categories listed below. The final grade calculation for the semester will consist of 80% of all
grades earned in the content grading categories from the

semester and 20% from the semester exam
for a total of 100%.
