Our Physics: The Foundational Science course is crafted to demystify the principles that orchestrate the natural world, from the trajectory of a golf ball to the engineering marvel that allows a metal boat to float. This comprehensive journey through Physics covers a broad spectrum of topics including friction, gravity, energy, momentum, and thermodynamics, presented in a way that highlights the magnificence of creation as ordained by God. Enhanced by over 500 vivid illustrations, detailed example equations, thought-provoking section questions, and practical application problems, the course is designed to foster a deep understanding and appreciation for the fundamental laws of physics. Students are encouraged to explore these concepts through a blend of theoretical knowledge and practical application, ensuring a well-rounded understanding of the subject matter.

The curriculum is structured to not only introduce students to the basic concepts of physics such as matter, motion, forces, light, electricity, and magnetism but also to challenge them to apply this knowledge in real-world scenarios. Through a combination of written assignments, quizzes, and a comprehensive final exam, learners are assessed on their grasp of the material, ensuring a robust understanding of physics principles. This approach empowers students to see beyond the textbook, recognizing the omnipresent influence of physics in our daily lives and the divine precision with which our universe operates. Northgate Academy’s Physics course is an invitation to students to unlock the mysteries of the physical world, fostering a lifelong passion for science and discovery.
