Jason R. Young - AP Physics, Physical Science, and The PHS RPG Club
Greetings, Students and Parents!
My name is Jason R. Young and welcome to my humble page. Here you will find important information pertaining to the classes that I teach as well as possibly learn a little science yourself.
AP PHYSICS - Physics is the study of motion and energy. Some of the topics that will be covered in this course include motion, vectors, forces, momentum, work and energy, gravity, circular and rotational motion (no, they are not the same), waves and sound, and electricity. This course, while often entertaining, requires well-developed algebra-based math skills, critical thinking and analysis skills, and the ability to "do", not just "know".
PHYSICAL SCIENCE - Physical Science is a combination of basic chemistry and basic physics. Some of the topics that will be covered in this course include science skills, matter, chemical and physical properties and changes, chemical reactions, motion, forces, momentum, work and energy, waves, light, and electricity.
THE PEARL HIGH SCHOOL ROLE-PLAYING GAME (PHS RPG) CLUB - Now starting its fourth semester, the PHS RPG Club is an after-school club where interested students can come together and play role-playing games and various board and card games that often accompany the RPG hobby. While this club sounds like a purely "social" activity, role-playing games have been known to teach and reinforce math and reading skills, problem solving skills, and interpersonal skills, all in a fun and relatively laid-back atmosphere.
