Physics 11 - Part 1 (PHYS 0861)

This course is designed to introduce the student to the basic concepts of physics through lecture and laboratory activities.  Motion is introduced and then gradually, mathematical models are developed allowing the student to quantify observations and predictions.  The content includes measurement, kinematics, dynamics, momentum and energy, and an introduction to special relativity. 

Physics 0861 and Physics 0871 can be taken at the same time or in any order.

Both Physics 0861 and Physics 0871 are required for Grade 11 Physics equivalency.

Prerequisites:  Precalculus 11 (successfully completed within the last 3 yrs., a minimum score of 72% on the Intermediate Algebra Math Assessment, or equivalent); English 10 (ENGL 059, an ELA score of 127, or equivalent).  If the math prerequisite is not met, MATH 0861 must be taken at the same time as PHYS 0861.

In addition to the class lectures, College Foundations ABE courses offer students tutorials for one-on-one support from instructors.
