## Physics 11

Physics 11 is the first opportunity students have to dive deeply into our intricate and intriguing world of *energy* and *forces*! These two culprits are responsible for everything from roller coasters, parachuting, car crashes, listening to acoustic bliss from your favourite band, to enjoying steaming hot cups of coffee, warming your hands by a fire, and playing on your favourite battery-powered devices, to name only a few of the phenomena we experience in our lives every day. Well, hopefully not the crashes.

Technically, these events fall under the more scientific concepts of kinematics, dynamics, momentum, electricity, circuits and waves, etc. But more importantly, in this course, students will find themselves absorbed and inspired – through animated instructional videos and other engaging materials – by a feast of real-life applications and discoveries of these very same concepts. This course is designed to propel students on an exciting journey toward a solid and firm understanding of the fascinating physical world that exists all around them.
