Abstract

In this experiment, we explore the potential of high school students to learn and apply more advanced material in the field of physics. Using a self-designed experimental five-day curriculum, four high schools totaling 185 students took part in the study, in which we discover the students' capabilities in advanced mathematics and physics, as well as an interesting correlation between their predicted MCAS scores against their resultant scores in the experiment.
