This course is intended for any High School student that needs a little help in the Physics course that you’re currently taking.

Also, consider it as a great resource for Final Exam Prep!

Each section will provide:

Conceptual explanations and explanations on how to do the problems

Problems that we’ll do together

Practice Problems for you to do on your own…..including an Answer Key

Ideally you have access to a printer, as it is highly suggested that you print out these worksheets.

In this course, you will learn…

Unit 1:

Standard & Metric System…including Metric Prefixes

► Converting from one system to another

Vectors & Scalars

► Adding & Subtracting Vectors

► Scaling Vectors

► Learn Trigonometry to determine the x & y components of a Resultant Vector

Standard & Scientific Notation

► Conceptually understand how to convert between these 2 notations

….as opposed to memorizing general rules you’re bound to forget!

► Convert from one notation to the other…

► Standard Notation → Scientific Notation

► Scientific Notation → Standard Notation

Unit 2:

Linear Motion (1-Dimensional Motion)

► Learn techniques on how to easily pull the given information out of a word problem

and how to quickly & confidently choose the correct Kinematic Formula!

► Use Kinematic Equations to solve problems where an object is moving along the:

x-axis – such as a car driving down the road

or the y-axis – such as an object in Free Fall, or being thrown up in the air

Projectile Motion: 2-Dimensional Motion

► Learn techniques on how to easily pull the given information out of a word problem

and how to quickly & confidently choose the correct Kinematic Formula!

► Use Kinematic Equations to solve problems where an object is….

– being Launched Horizontally off of a cliff

Unit 3:

Newton’s Laws of Motion

Free Body Diagrams

► Learn to draw FBD’s to prepare you for the section on Forces

Forces Acting on an Object (Flat Surface & Incline Plane)

► Learn how to solve problems using the 2 force equations Force = mass * acceleration

► Use the Trigonometry that we learned in the Vectors Unit to solve problems on an Incline Plane

Tension (coming soon!)

Unit 4:

Work & Power….and Kinetic Energy & Potential Energy

► Solve very basic problems to prepare us for the Conservation of Energy section

Conservation of Energy

► Understand Initial Energy of a System is equal to the Final Energy of a System

to solve Conservation of Energy problems

Unit 5:

Momentum

► Learn how to solve Elastic & Inelastic Collision problems using the Conservation of Momentum formula

► Learn how to solve 2-Dimensional Elastic Collision problems using the Conservation of Momentum formula
