In this 6-week course, students have fun learning core physics topics - force, motion, newton's laws, gravity, friction, work, power, energy, and electromagnetism. #academic

#### Class experience

###### US Grade 5 - 7
`This class is taught in English.`
```- Investigate what causes an object to move, continue, and stop.
- Understand how to calculate speed, velocity, acceleration, net force, kinetic energy, potential energy, work, and power.
- Demonstrate and describe how an object’s speed or direction of motion changes when a force acts upon it.
- Explore how other forces, such as gravity and friction, affect an object and its motion.
- Apply your knowledge of Newton's Laws of Motion to construct a device or devices.
- Explain that when energy is transferred from one system to another, the total quantity of energy does not change.```

```Guided notes are sent out weekly on Sundays.

Optional: Colored pencils for notes and some common materials for demonstrations or optional projects. Most items can be found around the home.

**Calculators are also encouraged.**```
