Physics is the basic science upon which all others are understood, and in this course you will study its fundamentals. The course is broken into six units that focus on mechanics, energy, nuclear physics and fields. It should be noted that physics is an academically intense, mathematically oriented discipline. An understanding of physics can broaden your understanding of the natural world drastically, but it requires a dedication and commitment to learning. There will be many practice assignments, problems, and assessments throughout the course and it is my expectation that if you have elected to take this course, you will participate actively in all of them!
