Physics 2

College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks

Physics 2 (PHYS102) - Prerequisites

High School Diploma or equivalent, and Physics 1 or equivalent.

Physics 2 (PHYS102) - Course Description

Physics 2 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated Physics 2 classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm.
(4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

This non-calculus, algebra/trigonometry college based physics course will include the following topics: Sound, wave interference, geometrical optics, heat, temperature, gas laws, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, relativity, quantum mechanics, and nuclear physics. A non-calculus approach will be used with only as much algebra and trigonometry as is required to give a precise treatment of physical problems. Problem solving will be strongly emphasized in this weekend physics class.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.
