Overview
This short course is intended for the high-school students who have taken an introductory-level physics course, acquired some background in Mechanics and intend to take a more advanced course – for instance, AP Physics C. The course helps the students refresh and strengthen their fluency with the mathematical tools and the fundamental topics in Mechanics: Kinematics, Newton’s laws and Laws of Conservation. The last unit of the course contains a comprehensive Final Exam. The students who completed this mini-course will be well-prepared to tackle more advanced course material in the fall.

What you'll learn
  • Algebra/trigonometry skills for an advanced Mechanics course
  • Kinematics of motion with constant acceleration
  • Newton’s laws and their application in problem-solving
  • Laws of conservation of energy and momentum and their application in problem-solving
  • Basic information about AP® Physics C (Mechanics) course and Exam
