- David McAvity mathematics, physics , Rebecca Sunderman (F,W) physical and inorganic chemistry
- Fields of Study
- chemistry, mathematics and physics
- Preparatory for studies or careers in
- chemistry, engineering, mathematics, medical fields, physics and teaching.
Careful observation of the natural world reveals an underlying order, which scientists try to understand and explain through model building and experimentation. Physical scientists seek to reveal the fundamental nature of matter, its composition, and its interactions. This program lays the foundation for doing this work. Students will study a full year of general chemistry, calculus and calculus-based physics through lectures, small group workshops, labs, seminars and field trips. The material will be closely integrated thematically. In fall the focus will be on motion and energetics. In winter we'll explore the interactions of science, technology and society. Spring quarter will further delve into topics in modern physics and mathematical modeling.
