This class consists of a lecture portion via Zoom with homework to do and then an in-person lab or if you can’t do the in-person, there will be virtual labs available. If you have your own curriculum at home and would like to just do the labs in person, that works as well. Projects will be used as mid-term and final grades.
This course will be an introduction to physics. Topics to be discussed include forces, motion, Newton’s Laws, energy and momentum, how energy is transferred throughout the environment as heat, waves, electricity, magnetism, and how physics relates to astronomy.

They must understand quadratic equations, complex numbers, polynomial functions, radical exponents and equating, polynomial proficiency functions, exponential and logarithmic functions, rational expressions and equations.
