Overview

Predicting motion is an important part of the natural sciences. Astronomy, physics, biology, chemistry, and geology all use the scientific method to make predictions and make informed decisions about future events. In this class, you will learn how classical mechanics both describes and predicts the motion of objects that we encounter in everyday life. You will learn how to analyze the motion of dropped, thrown, and launched objects (projectiles) along with rotating objects using kinematics and dynamics. You will also learn about kinetic and potential energy, momentum, the center of mass, Newton's law of gravitation, spring forces, harmonic oscillators and waves. This will prepare you for future physics and science courses.

Instructor

Hi, I'm Robert. I hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics as well as a BA in Physics. I have been a private tutor for over 13 years. I enjoying sharing my knowledge of mathematics and physics with students, creating relatable examples, and making learning fun. My philosophy is not only teaching students but inspiring them to learn more about the material on their own.
