Welcome to Santa Teresa's Physics Class, where you will discover the mysteries of the natural world and learn how to use physics to explain them. This course is perfect for those who enjoy solving problems and figuring out how things work, or for anyone planning to pursue a career in science or computer science.
As the basis for all other science courses, physics explains how the world works and applies math to the real world. In this class, you will get to experience physics first-hand through very hands-on labs with physics "toys" and equipment. You will also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge through engineering tasks where you create a device or program with learned physics knowledge.
In this course, you will explore the fundamental principles of physics and apply them to real-world situations. You will learn about mechanics, waves, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and modern physics, covering topics like motion, force, energy, and momentum. You will also gain insight into how these concepts relate to the world around us.
Throughout the class, we emphasize the importance of scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and experimental design. You will learn how to conduct scientific investigations, analyze data, and communicate results effectively, preparing you for a future in any scientific or technical field.
By the end of Santa Teresa's Physics Class, you will have gained a deep understanding of physics and the skills necessary to pursue your career goals. So join us on this exciting journey of discovery and take the first step towards unlocking the secrets of the universe.
