Introduction to Mechanics Specialization

  • You must enroll in this course to access course content.

Understand the Physics of Mechanics and Motion. This specialization is equivalent to a one semester calculus-based introductory mechanics course, and will prepare you well for further coursework or independent study in science or engineering.
This specialization is for learners who are interested in first-year, university-level physics. Through three courses, you will gain a foundation in mechanics including motion, forces, energy, momentum, rotational motion, and gravitation. With 100 brief lectures and over 100 problems, this comprehensive specialization is similar in detail and rigor to what is taught in on-campus courses. It will thoroughly prepare learners for their upcoming introductory physics courses, or more advanced studies.

Applied Learning Project

The courses include conceptual lecture questions, computational homework problems, and comprehensive exams. These will build your skills in using mathematical tools (trigonometry, vector analysis, and calculus) to calculate and/or estimate needed parameters in real-world problems.
