Does learning how things move, fly and spin get your creative juices flowing?
This physics class takes a close look at the wonders of the mechanical world around us. Students will roll things down ramps, shoot projectiles through the air and build simple machines, as well as discover why things fall and why they orbit. This course will help establish a knowledge and skills foundation for students seeking to take advanced courses in physics. Topics examined will include Newtonian mechanics, projectile motion, energy, work, simple machines, rotational mechanics, buoyancy and gravity and orbital mechanics.
