Physics Block (formerly Engineering Block)
This block consists of Physics 12 (SPH4U) and an Interdisciplinary Studies course, Extended Physics (IDC4U – see below), each consisting of 110 hours. Students will learn how to apply the Physics learned in SPH4U through projects that involve designing, building and controlling machines from the simple to the complex. Students will be challenged in areas involving robotics, hydraulics, and levers. They will study gravity, motion dynamics, torque, energy, work, and momentum not only theoretically but experimentally.
