Detailní popis

We stand on the shoulders of giants. Whether by observation, experimentation or brilliant insight, the progress of physics through the centuries has been advanced by scientific geniuses who wanted to know how things work. Students will find out for themselves when they take this course and visit “Physics World.”

In each “Physics World” module, students discover the contributions of geniuses like Galileo, Newton and Einstein. In their work, students learn the concepts, theories, and laws that govern the interaction of matter, energy and forces. From tiny atoms to galaxies with millions of stars, the universal laws of physics are there for you to observe and apply. Using laboratory activities, videos, software, and websites, students will follow in the footsteps of some of the world’s greatest thinkers.

This is a serious course that will make students think. It will also make them appreciate the beauty and importance of the science that governs their lives.

Study materials (e-books, Discovery Education, etc. ...) for FLVS Global courses are INCLUDED in the price of the course.
