This is the first semester in a two-semester course sequence. This course examines physics, the study of the world around us and the laws of nature that govern that world. The first semester of physics will cover key mathematics used in Physics, as well as the topics of motion (one dimensional and projectile motion), forces, Newton’s Laws, gravity, circular motion, collisions and momentum, work and energy. This is an algebra-based introductory high school physics class. A student who has completed geometry is well prepared for this course work.
