    Usually a high school physics class in the U.S. covers introductory, algebra based mechanics, dynamics, thermodynamics, optics and possibly some E&M.

    Some A.P. classes may cover more E&M or cover the topics from a Calculus-based perspective.

    Re: Question ??

    High schools very rarely cover anything more than basic calculus, and this is usually not a mandatory course. Sometimes only students interested in studying science at university will take calculus in high school.

    I don't remember much about what I covered in Chemistry. I will let someone else answer that.
