What is Physics?
Physics is a survey course introducing the student to algebra-based physics. Topics include, but not limited to, motion, vectors, Newton’s Laws of Motion, work, energy, momentum, collisions, heat, thermodynamics, vibrations, waves, and sound. The students will be assigned questions and problems on a regular basis. There will also be a lab associated with the course. These labs are designed to provide students with a variety of experiences to reinforce physics principles. Each student will receive safety training, and be held accountable for strictly following safety guidelines. All labs and associated problems MUST be completed in pencil unless submitted electronically. You will need a calculator, and a mechanical pencil is helpful.
Topics we will cover in this class include:
Newton’s Laws of Motion
