Welcome to Physics in the Universe! We'll derive physical concepts by studying stars and galaxies. Physics has a reputation of being difficult, but let me ease your fears - most of my students really enjoy the class. We rarely have homework, and the math component rarely goes past algebra one. With that said, this is REAL physics. We'll solve complex word problems using equations with up to 5 variables. While that may sound intimidating, students tend to succeed because we learn through hands-on activities and labs. Students work on labs, games, and projects most days, and that keeps things interesting.
