Physics is more than calculators and equations, but they do come in handy

Physics is the study of the physical world. It is the basis of understanding everything around us. Simple laws of physics can be used to understand baseball or to send a person to the moon.

In this class we cover the basics of kinematics, dynamics, electricity and magnestism and wave phenomena. We also will have a chance to explore topics of personal interest to students. Each concept is explored using lecture,lab,problem solving and inquiry techniques.
