SYLLABUS

 

This Physics course is designed to introduce the students to basic principles of the scientific method. Starting with basic experiments, the fundamental structure of the scientific method will be discussed. The students will learn about the role of mathematics while performing an experiment, the role of the units of measurements, and the role of significance figures during the processing of the data. In particular, we will discuss basic laws of Classical Physics, including the Newton’s Laws and the Laws of Conservation. We will introduce basic concepts (like Energy, Power, Impulse, etc) that are extremely important in our everyday live. At the same time, this course will be an introduction to higher level AP Physics 1 Course.
