Course Description
Description: 

In Physics 11, students will focus on the study of light, motion, forces, and energy. Throughout this course students will be asked to observe, measure and analyse natural phenomena using the scientific method. By performing experiments, testing hypotheses, and using models, students will investigate some of the central ideas of physics.

 

This course has been designed so students without access to a laboratory can complete the necessary experimental work, however, it is preferable to do the experiments in a regular laboratory.

 

The modules in Physics 11 should be completed in order since students will be building on concepts as they work through the course.

 

Pre-requisites: 
It is recommended that students complete: Grade 10
Pre-requisites: 
Principles of Mathematics 11 should be taken prior to or concurrently with Physics 11.
