Class experience

Beginner Level
  • Part 2a: Force Essentials Big Idea: Forces influence the motion of an object. • contact forces and the factors that affect magnitude and direction — for example, normal force, spring force, tension force, frictional force • mass, force of gravity, and apparent weight • Newton’s laws of motion and free-body diagrams — First: the concept of mass as a measure of inertia — Second: net force from one or more forces — Third: actions/reactions happen at the same time in pairs • balanced and unbalanced forces in one-body systems

Homework Offered
Homework is asynchronous and students complete as many of the assignments as desired. The more work attempted the more success one will find in their upcoming physics course. All participants receive a subscription to the Minds on Physics program from The Physics Classroom.
4+ hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
The Physics Classroom assignments are self-paced formative assessments providing students with instant feedback and the free subscription provides reports on progress.
Grades Offered
I work with ALL students interested in learning physics. 
This is an algebra based physics course. To be successful students need to have a good understanding of first year algebra.
scientific calculator
pencil and paper
