General Physics I
Overall Rating  

Content Rating 
Physics involves the study of matter and energy and the interaction between them. In this course, you’ll investigate the science that describes and explains the nature and behavior of physical systems. You will learn about:
 Kinematics, the branch of mechanics that describes motion
 Energy, Power, and Momentum
 Angular, Rotational, and Oscillatory Motion
 Newton’s Laws
 Gravity
 Relativity
 Waves
 Fluids
 And more…
This engineering Physics course requires a solid foundation of algebra, trigonometry and basic calculus, including derivatives, limits and integrals. A strong background in math is recommended. Please refer to the Prerequisite recommendations below.
Taught by Steven Pollock, 2013 U.S. Professor of the Year, this videobased Physics curriculum is dynamic, engaging and easy to understand.

The general physics 1 course material was clearly explained by the professor and you are given ungraded quizzes in order to help check your understanding where you can get the correct answers after the quiz and retake it for practice. It is definitely one of the better courses I have taken during my college years and I highly recommend the course.
