This course will provide students with an engaging and effective online experience in physics. The course is divided into four distinct parts, each consisting of three, fifteen-lesson units. Each of the units is based on a central concept. Students will find graded assessments after each lesson and an exam at the end of each part of the course.
Although physics can be a challenging science, it is also an incredibly engaging and rewarding course that is designed to provide students with an overview of the traditional subject matter and present the latest, most modern research in the field today. Beginning with Newtonian Mechanics, students will learn that every object is acted upon by multiple and predictable forces. The course moves on to cover fluid mechanics and the relationships between matter and energy as the laws of thermodynamics are investigated. The course also covers the topics of electricity and magnetism and explores the various models used to explain and apply these universal forces. The course also covers the characteristics of waves and provides an overview of optics before the final set of lessons on atomic physics. Here, the students will review the characteristics of the atom and its elemental particles; students will also apply their knowledge to modern physics.

Part 1 Description
Isaac Newtons impact on the study of motion was revolutionary and the course begins with the study of his laws and the mathematics behind moving objects. From the affects of gravity to the details of collisions, students will learn the rules and apply their knowledge of objects in motion. The conservation of energy is also covered in this part of the course and will compare and contrast elastic and inelastic systems.

_________â_Part 1 Unit 2 Newtons Law of Motion
_________â_Part 1 Unit 3 Systems of Particles

Part 2 Description
Part 2 of the course expands on the ideas of Newton and moves to circular motion, harmonic motion, and periodic motion. Students will investigate the influence of these forces on earth and in space as described by Kepler. The second unit explores the complex forces that impact the characteristics of fluids, providing an overview of the principles of Archimedes, Pascal, and Bernoulli. Also covered in this part of the course are the relationships between heat, energy, and temperature, as well as the laws of thermodynamics.
