Conceptual Physics

Course Description:

This course is designed for the student who is not pursuing a career or college degree that is math-based.  We will explore physics with class lectures and many hands-on activities to unlock the world of physics and God’s hand in it.  Concepts will be demonstrated with easy to understand examples of everyday life experiences.  The text is easy and enjoyable to read.  Testing is over the topic vocabulary, concepts, and math problems (yet less intensive than STEM Physics).  An overview of the topics covered are material substances, mechanics, thermodynamics, wave phenomena, electricity/ magnetism, and modern physics.
