*Course Name : Physics 12M. Hengeveld*

*Course Description :*

A purvey of "classical" mechanics (linear and rotational motion of simple, solid bodies in 2D) and an introduction to electricity and magnetism. All topics are given a fairly rigorous mathematical treatment, including vector mechanics and graphical analysis, but *not *requiring calculus.

**Term I**

- Vectors
- Kinematics & Dynamics
- Projectile Motion
- Torque
- Static Equilibrium

**Term II**

- Rotational Motion
- Orbits and Gravity
- Work, Power, Energy
- Momentum
- Electrostatics

**Term III**

- Electrodynamics
- Magnetism
- Magnetic Induction

*Evaluation :*

- Term II - 20%
- Term III - 20%

- Labs/ Projects - 25%
- Tests - 75%

*Comments :*

Policies regarding evaluations and attendance can be found in your student agenda. Problem solving is a large component of this course - the best physics student is a critical thinking "problem solver", yet there is no chapter or topic by that name. The following tips may be useful in your development of a "physics mind".

- Keep up. Do your homework, attend all classes.
- Work with your peers on tougher questions.
- Ask questions when a topic or problem is unclear.
- Theory should explain what you can see and measure.
