Ashbury College is planning for in-person (on-campus) learning, following all safety protocols, for this academic credit course, with the caveat that we may have to alter our plans due to the pandemic following guidelines from Ottawa Public Health (OPH).
Prerequisite: Science, Grade 10, Academic
This course develops students’ understanding of the basic concepts of physics. Students will explore kinematics, with an emphasis on linear motion; different kinds of forces; energy transformations; the properties of mechanical waves and sound; and electricity and magnetism. They will enhance their scientific investigation skills as they test laws of physics. In addition, they will analyze the interrelationships between physics and technology, and consider the impact of technological applications of physics on society and the environment. Laboratory experiments introduce, reinforce and extend theory covered in class. Various activities also introduce problem-solving techniques and the concept of experimental error and uncertainty. Students should possess an enquiring nature and good thinking, listening, speaking, reading and writing skills. Students are also expected to have good numerical problem-solving abilities and be comfortable working with others.
