Physics is all about the study of interactions, the effect of interactions, and predictions you can make when you know the interactions.  Specifically you will studying about forces, the connection between forces and motion, the limits on the effects interactions can cause, and that waves are a type of interaction between objects.  To help with the understanding of physics, you will need to know some math.  The math in this class involves solving one equation in one unknown, finding slope and y-intercept on a graph, and knowing what mean and standard deviation are and how to calculate them.

This class doesn't use a textbook, but in my syllabus I give a list of recommended books that can help you in my class.
