Course Description
Description: 

This course has two components:

• a basic component using text and print material only

• a video component

 

Students should ignore any reference in the course material to a Provincial Exam, as the
Ministry of Education removed this requirement in Sept 2011.

 

Pre-requisites: 
It is recommended that students complete: Grade 10
Pre-requisites: 
Physics 11 and Principles of Mathematics 11 or equivalent
Pre-requisites: 
Students who have not completed Math 12 are strongly urged to take Math 12 concurrently with Physics 12.
No. Exams: 
3
Proctored Exams: 
Yes
Resources: 

Physics: Principles with Applications (Giancoli) (Pearson Education) (5th edition) 

Physics 12 Student Laboratory Manual (Ministry of Ed.) (1985 edition)

Physics 12 Supplement 

 

Supplies provided by students:

* transparent metric ruler

* protractor

* geometry set (useful but not required)

 

A scientific calculator is required. It may be a graphing calculator and it may be programmable, although the course and exams do not make any use of these features. The calculator must NOT have a QWERTY keyboard, nor any external devices like memory cards or a printer.

 

Students who do not have access to the video tapes/VCR and/or laboratory will require the Physics 12 Supplement. This supplement is a “bare bones” summary of the course labs and the video tapes.
