The class includes a lab component and most of the equipment needed can be found at home or local hardware store. The student will be responsible for acquiring the needed supplies.
Taught from a Biblical worldview, the course will reinforce there is no dichotomy between faith and science while exploring the evidence supporting Romans 1:20.
Physics is math with a purpose, therefore, students taking this course must be competent in algebra (including the quadratic formula, logarithms, and adding fractions) and geometry (especially the Pythagorean theorem) and the trigonometric functions of sine, cosine, tangent, and arc-tangent.
The homework and exams are designed for the student to go beyond just learning the concepts, associated equations, and showing competence in doing the math associated but to foster their critical thinking and problem solving skills, as well. As the Greek, Sophocles said, “One must learn a thing by doing it. For though you think you know, you have no certainty until you try.” This course will challenge your student. It moves at a quick pace and rhythm requiring the student to engage in the material each week and throughout the entire course.
