Course Overview

   Physics is a branch of science that involves the study of the physical world, from motion and energy to light and electricity. Physics also uses the scientific method to discover general laws that can be used to make predictions about a variety of situations. A common technique in Physics for analyzing a complex situation is to disregard irrelevant factors and create a model that will describe the importance of a system or situation. This course will offer a conceptual development and quantitative approaches in applications that will cover the full spectrum of Physics.
