This course is designed for those who are learning to teach Algebra-Based Physics and Trigonometry-Based Physics for middle school or high school students, focusing on conveying physics and mathematical concepts. Underlying themes are physics connections to everyday life, applications of algebra and trigonometry in physics, problem solving, and hands on laboratory experience. The course presents physics as the foundation for studying chemistry, biology and advanced mathematics. Technology serves as a tool to establish these connections through exploration, problem solving, formative assessment, presentation, and communication. 

This course covers two-dimensional electricity and magnetism topics including electric force and field, electric potential and capacitors, magnetism and electromagnetic induction, and electromagnetic waves and an introduction to modern physics.

Course Format

The first 15 modules of this course all contain a short answer assignment, a quiz, a lab, and a module exam. Make sure that you familiarize yourself with each of the short answer assignment’s grading rubric. Each module also contains practice problems, videos, and interactives to facilitate your learning. In module 16, you’ll be writing a reflection paper about what you’ve learned in the course and completing a comprehensive final exam.
