This course will be equivalent to a semester long calculus based mechanics course taken at a university. Topics will include: measurement; linear motion in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions; vectors; forces and motion; kinetic energy, potential energy and work; systems of particles; linear momentum; rotational motion, torque, and angular momentum; law of universal gravitation; and oscillations. A major goal of this class will be to prepare the students for the AP Physics C Mechanics exam, which will involve rigorous coursework.

Note: I will not be using Zoom regular to instruct, but will use it (or any other similar platforms) for you to get questions answered (i.e. like our conference period). I will be putting information/links to be studying and reviewing our learned material for the school year, to help you prepare for the AP Exam (if you are taking it) or our Final Exam (if you are not).
