Study Edge Physics
In Physics, students will conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: laws of motion; changes within physical systems and conservation of energy and momentum; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. Students who successfully complete Physics will acquire factual knowledge within a conceptual framework, practice experimental design and interpretation, work collaboratively with colleagues, and develop critical thinking skills (TAC §112.39(b)(1)).

6.01 Classifications of Waves
In this video, we explore the two fundamental categories of waves and give physical examples of each.
6.02 Properties of Waves
In this video, we define the fundamental quantities associated with waves, including frequency, period, amplitude, and speed.
6.03 Sound Waves
In this video, we explore how the mathematics and concepts of waves apply to a specific type of wave: sound.
6.04 The Doppler Effect and Interference
In this video, we explore the Doppler effect, which modulates the perceived frequency of waves depending on the relative motion between source and observer.
