Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

This course is survey of major concepts, methods, and applications of physics. Topics include a description of motion, Newton's Laws, conservation principles (energy and momentum), waves, thermodynamics, electricity, magnetism, optics, and modern physics. It is for students who need a basic understanding of physics.

The online course is developed for use in distance and blended learning.
