Everything around you can be described and understood using the tools of physics. This course is designed to put learners in situations where they investigate force, motion, vectors, light, electricity, sound, temperature and pressure. Experiments will be conducted in order to prove necessary practical experience. In this class you will be confronted with a series of situations in which you will decide what factors might be related, how you can go about measuring them, and collect data. You will learn how to use a computer to help you graphically analyze the data and you will learn how to clearly describe the relationships you found, using a variety of representations. You will then go on to explore how the relationships you discovered can be applied to a wide variety of new situations.
