“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1)
Physics is the most basic of all sciences, because it is about the study of the laws and principles governing the Creation such as motion, forces, energy, matter, heat, sound, electricity, magnetism, and light. The Physics, Honors student will study these topics through reading, writing, and problem solving; using an analytical/mathematical approach supported by hands-on activities and demonstrations, designed to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for careers in science and engineering. The study of physics will reinforce in the student’s minds the truth of the Psalmist’s proclamation and the awesomeness of the Creator, Who spoke into the darkness, saying “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3); the single, most astounding statement ever spoken.
