Welcome to Open House Concepts of Physics Mr. Kuffer Physics offered at North Allegheny AP Physics Honors Physics Concepts of Physics Concepts of Physics This course is intended for college bound students

who are interested in a non-science career. Students will study the following topics: classical mechanics (motion, energy, gravitational concepts, etc), waves, sound, light and optics, electromagnetism and current electricity. Although the class stresses concepts over computations, a basic understanding of Algebra and Geometry is required.
