Physics is often considered the basis for all sciences. It studies and describes the motion, energy, momentum, and forces on matter throughout the entire universe. Many scientists believe in order to truly understand the other sciences one must also have an understanding of physics. This course is designed to do just that: provide a basic understanding of physics to round out your science education. We will cover many topics throughout the school year. Some will involve problem solving, others critical thinking. Mathematics will also play a vital role in your physics education, so brush up on those algebra skills now!
