Physics

The physics program comprises three major tracks:

A.      Academic track - Gifted class

Lower school students learn: 7th grade - introduction, material structure, dynamics, basic kinematics; in 8th grade- hydrostatics, work and mechanical energy, heat, electrostatics and basic electrical current.  In 9th grade students study geometrical optics, light models, mechanical and electromagnetic waves, modern physics. During this year students already learn at Bagrut level.

Structure of studies for Bagrut exams:

10th grade: mechanics, kinematics, dynamics, condition and preservation, mechanical energy, gravitation (1.5 pts).

11th grade: electrical magnetism, straight flow circuits, magnetic field, electromagnetic inspiration, radiation and material (back) , modern physics and research laboratory (3.5 pts).

B.      Advanced Sciences (MOFET) class

Lower school students: in 7th grade - introduction, material structure, dynamics, basic kinematics; in 8th grade hydrostatics, work and mechanical energy, basic heat. In 9th grade students learn electrostatic fields, straight flow circuits, the magnetic field basics.

Structure of studies for Bagrut exams:

10th grade: mechanics, kinematics, dynamics, condition and preservation, mechanical energy, gravitation (1.5 pts).

11th grade: electric magnetism, electrostatic fields, straight flow circuits, magnetic field, electromagnetic inspiration. (1.5 pts)

12th grade: radiation and material, modern physics, research laboratory (2 pts).

C.      Track for new students

Students interesting in studying physics who have not studied in the lower school may choose physics as an expanded subject provided that their grade in math is at least 90, at the level of 4-5 points. The study schedule will be as track B.

Students excelling in the physics tracks may be able to specialize in lasers.
