Testing the Laws of Physics


Honors Physics students test their 'mouse-a-pults' in the US Academic Center in November.

Students collaborate and strategize during this hands-on experiment that tests the laws of physics. This survey course is designed for students with very strong mathematical skills. Students are required to solve challenging problems graphically as well as with trigonometry and advanced algebra. Topics covered in depth include Newtonian mechanics, thermal physics, electricity and magnetism, waves and sound, light and optics, and nuclear physics.
