Physics 30 is intended to further students’ understanding and application of fundamental physics concepts and skills. The focus of the course is on understanding the physics principles behind the natural events that students experience and the technology that they use in their daily lives. The course consists of four units of study and builds on the following concepts from Physics 20: Kinematics; Unit B: Dynamics; Circular Motion, Work and Energy, Oscillatory Motion and Mechanical Waves. It is strongly recommended that students have at least 65% in Physics 20 and Math 20-1.
If you miss a unit exam, you will be given an opportunity to write an alternate exam at the end of the course. If you miss a quiz, no alternate quiz will be given.
If you are going to be away from class for ANY reason, make sure you check the file called Required Reading. It will give you a section-by-section list of material from the text book as well as homework problems from the text.
