This course provides an in-depth overview of the law of nature. Topics include matter and interactions, forces and motion, energy, and waves and their interactions and applications. Course instruction promotes a solid understanding of physics, cultivation of problem-solving and critical-thinking skills related to physics, application of physics knowledge to decision-making about scientific and technological issues, recognition of the importance of physics in daily life, and an understanding of benefits as well as limitations of science and technology. As a result of the increased rigor of the Honors course, students are required to demonstrate advanced skills in thinking logically and intuitively while exhibiting evidence of divergent and creative thinkingin science. Topics are covered more in depth in comparison to the regular course and instruction is delivered at a faster pace.
