# Physics Honors

This course will be taught in the 24-25 terms. It rotates every other year with Chemistry with Lab Honors. This college-prep physics course is designed for the student who has completed algebra and has had an introduction to the definitions of sine, cosine, and tangent. It provides a detailed introduction to the methods and concepts of general physics, heavily emphasizing vector analysis; this text is ideal preparation for a university-level physics course.

Prerequisites: Successful completion of Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II (with permission from the instructor)
