This course is an algebra based survey which explores the fundamental physical and energy processes in our world.

The first semester includes the topics of kinematics, two-dimensional motion, Forces, Newton’s Laws of Motion, work, energy, momentum, circular motion, and heat. The second semester includes the topics of vibration and waves, sound, light, optics, electrostatics, current electricity, magnetism, and atomic physics.

Students encounter the material through print, audio, and visual online sources, practice problem sets, lab experiments, discussion board exchanges, and real time instruction. Their achievement is assessed through objective and short answer quizzes, written lab reports, discussion board posts, and exams composed of both objective and free response questions.
