Fixed-Pace Course





In Physics, students will explore the foundations of the world around us: matter, force and energy. Through interactive lessons, guided investigations, and practical and virtual labs students will develop fluency with the basic laws and concepts of mechanics, light, sound, and electricity. Topics covered will include measurement, the constant velocity model, the uniform acceleration model, the free particle model, net force, motion in two dimensions, uniform circular motion, energy, momentum, and fluid forces. Throughout, students will focus on practical applications and connect course concepts to developments in the contemporary world.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
