# Physics 100: Mastering Kinematics

Comprehensive course including lectures, concepts, and problem solving tutorials.

This course covers all of  one and two dimensional kinematics and sets the foundation for other topics.   The class is perfect for high school (honors and AP students), college and university students taking an introductory physics class.    Students will learn to analyze the motion of an object using equations and graphs.    I will teach you how to approach problems and help you develop your own problem solving strategies to become a better problem solver.

What you’ll learn

• They will learn how to solve any one and two dimensional kinematics problem.
• Feel comfortable using kinematics equations and solving graphical problems.
• Develop a strategy to solve kinematic problems.
• Learn how to solve relative motion problems such as river crossing problems.
