Physics is a branch of science aimed at describing the fundamental aspects of our universe. This includes what things are in it, what properties of those things are noticeable, and what processes those things or their properties undergo. Physics attempts to describe the basic mechanisms that make our universe behave the way it does. In this course, students will learn about how objects move, Newton's Laws, energy, sound, light, and more. Students will analyze data, develop models, conduct experiments and solve problems.
