Grade 12 - Science

Physics (Credit: 1.00)

Charge up the learning with this flexible, interactive physics course geared for today's students. Guided by a teacher, students are introduced to the underlying principles of physics and perform experiments enabling them to see these principles in action and gain a better understanding of the motion that exists in God's creation. As a part of a complete learning management system, physics is a self-directed course infused with technology-based lessons, tools, and exercises to enrich learning for students, and streamline instruction and administrative tasks for teachers. Like all Ignitia courses, Bible verses (KJV) and biblical references support the development of a Christian worldview and encourage practical Christian living.

This high level science course combines cutting-edge technology with challenging academics, helping prepare high school students for rigorous college instruction. During the course, students will explore the physical world and the universe including light, motion, energy, electricity, magnetism, waves, nuclear energy, and thermodynamics. Through on and off-computer lessons, the course encourages critical thinking and higher level problem solving from a Christ-centered perspective. The course units include text-based lessons, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, learning games, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's digital generation and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. Ignitia Physics enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning.

Throughout the course, students will explore the following topics:
  • The Language of Physics
  • Newton, Motion, and Momentum
  • Work and Energy
  • Introduction to Waves
  • Light
  • Static Electricity
  • Electric Currents
  • Magnetism
  • Atomic and Nuclear Physics
