  • With little or no calculus knowledge
  • With little or no physics knowledge

Description

HOW THIS COURSE WORK:

This course, Introduction to Mechanics: Kinematics, covers the first chapter of your first physics course, including video and notes from whiteboard during lectures, and practice problems (with solutions!). I also show every single step in examples and derivations of formula/equations. The course is organized into the following sections:

  • Motion in a Straight Line

  • Kinematics in Two Dimensions

CONTENT YOU WILL GET INSIDE EACH SECTION:

Videos: I start each topic by introducing and explaining the concept. I share all my solving-problem techniques using examples. I show a variety of math issue you may encounter in class and make sure you can solve any problem by yourself.

Notes: In this section, you will find my notes that I wrote during lecture. So you can review the notes even when you don’t have internet access (but I encourage you to take your own notes while taking the course!).

Extra notes: I provide some extra notes, including formula sheets and some other useful study guidance.

Assignments: After you watch me doing some examples, now it’s your turn to solve the problems! Be honest and do the practice problems before you check the solutions! If you pass, great! If not, you can review the videos and notes again or ask for help in the Q&A section.

THINGS THAT ARE INCLUDED IN THE COURSE:

  • An instructor who truly cares about your success

  • Lifetime access to Introduction to Mechanics: Kinematics

  • Friendly support in the Q&A section

  • Udemy Certificate of Completion available for download

HIGHLIGHTS:

#1: Downloadable lectures so you can watch the videos whenever and wherever you are.

#2: Downloadable lecture notes so you can review the lectures without having a device to watch/listen.

#3: Two problem sets in total at the end of each section (with solutions!) for you to do more practice.

#4: Step-by-step guide to help you solve problems.

See you inside the course!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who has completed high school math (precalculus) and is interested in getting into the science field
  • Current mechanics students who are looking for extra help outside school
  • Anyone who is not in science stream but wants to study physics for fun
