High School Physics Curriculum

High School Physics Curriculum

This curriculum is one of the three science subjects at all high schools in the United States. Let’s Read English’s physics class is meant to prepare students for science courses in college. While physics is a subject for 11th grade, 12th graders and 10th graders can also take it for different reasons.

The course will teach students the basic laws that govern the universe. Here are the topics covered in Let’s Read English’s curriculum and how the course will help your child.

What Do You Teach in High School Physics?

This course introduces students to how the universe works. Your child will also learn how components relate to one another. We’ll take our students through the exploration of numerous science concepts and link the concepts to daily life.

Sone of the topics covered in the course are abstract thinking, critical thinking, magnetism, electricity, energy, motion, and problem-solving processes. They’ll get to learn how to handle experiments, present hypotheses, and study science principles.

Some of the topics that students will learn are:

  • Ability to think abstractly and critically.
  • Application of scientific methods to find solutions to problems.
  • Introduction to remarkable inventions in modern and nuclear physics.
  • Introduction to data recording, graphing, scientific equations, and scientific research.
  • How sound wave and light wave function.
  • The principles of magnetism and electricity.
  • Introduction to the laws of gravity, forces, and motion.
  • The relationship of energy and work to thermodynamics.
