Physics 12


Kathleen Pugh


Physics 11, AND Pre-Calculus Math 11or 80% or higher in Foundations of Math 11. Students who have not completed PreCalculus 12 are strongly urged to take PreCalculus 12 concurrently with Physics 12.


The course is divided into 8 units. The course starts from where Physics 11 left off with the study of motion. You will move on from there to explore dynamics, circular motion, energy, electricity and magnetism. The course requires a strong foundation in mathematics. The course emphasizes problem-solving and exploration. The course is well-supported with instructional videos, practice questions and solutions.






Student-paced - for those who wish to take responsibility for establishing their own timelines or who need to have maximum flexibility in terms of course work in order to accommodate other activities in their lives.


Unit 1: Math and Kinematics
Unit 2: Dynamics and Torque
