Physics is the study of the rules of nature. It includes topics such as motion, force, energy,
fluids, heat, sound, electricity and magnetism. Conceptual Physics is a hands-on class that
focuses on understanding and applying the concepts of physics rather than mathematical
problem solving. Basic algebra skills are still used but only to illustrate the concepts. This class
involves lab work and analytical skills and is an excellent introduction to physics regardless of
background or future plans.
