Physics 1 at ISM is an algebra based course that covers Newtonian Mechanics.

This website will provide lessons and resources to help you be successful in this class. It will be updated frequently, so check back often.

The single most important thing you can do to learn physics is to work problems. Lots and lots of problems. Every evening.
