This course covers concepts in linear motion, Newton’s laws, heat, electricity and light and sound and uses kinematics and measurement to quantify physical changes. A strong lab component enables practical students learning.
Students meet with an instructor at the campus nearest them to discuss their goals and assess their skill level. Available in Grand Forks, Kaslo, Nakusp, Nelson, and Trail.
This course prepares students for further studies in physics and is equivalent to a Grade 11 level physics.
Prerequisites: Math 49 or sufficient Computerized Placement Test (CPT) score with basic algebra skills (mostly solving equations and rearranging equations). Equivalent Courses: Physics 52 and 53 together are equivalent to Physics 50. Corequisites: Math 50.
