Dual Credit Physics S427/S428
For those students who have taken Physics I or Pre-AP Physics I or AP Physics B as a first year physics course, you may enroll in the Dual Credit Physics course. The first semester course fulfills the course requirements for General Physics I and its laboratory (4 college credits) and covers mechanics, thermodynamics, and fluids. The second semester course fulfills the course requirements for General Physics II and its laboratory (4 college credits) and covers electricity, magnetism, sound, light, and atomic physics. The class meets every day.

The course is not recommended for students attempting the course as their first physics course, the mathematics and the pace have proven to be too much for first year physics students to handle.
For students planning on majoring in engineering, medicine, nursing, or computer science in college, the calculus based Engineering Physics courses can be offered instead of the General Physics. Interested students should contact Mr. Casao to make arrangements to offer the course.
Prior to entry into the course, all students must score at least a 78 on the Reading portion of the Accuplacer test and at least a 51 (I believe) on the College Algebra portion of the Accuplacer test.
