Description

This is a preparatory course for introductory physics (PHYS 2210). It focuses primarily on developing math and problem solving skills using interesting physics & astronomy content. The course will improve student fluency in algebra, vectors, trigonometry, and basic geometry through regular practice of solving problems. It will also teach students how physicists approach problem solving more generally. Students will also be exposed to derivatives and their physical meaning.
