Physics: Introduction to Mechanics
Physics could be described as an active sport. Like most subjects in math and science, you can't learn it by being passive. Physics demands participation ... and practice. Like any sport, to be good in physics you must practice.
Physics can also be described as a quantitative science. Concepts like speed, acceleration, force, momentum and energy can be described in words; but they can also be described by mathematical formulas. Many concepts in physics are mathematical quantities which can be measured, calculated and quantitatively related to other measurable quantities. While physics is considerably more than mathematics, it is most certainly understood more fully when the mathematics associated with the concepts is explored and understood.

What is CoveredMechanics is the branch of Physics dealing with the study of motion. No matter what your interest in science or engineering, mechanics will be important for you  motion is a fundamental idea in all
of science. 
Wisconsin Teaching Standards Students in Wisconsin will demonstrate an understanding of the physical and chemical properties of matter, the forms and properties of energy, and the ways in which matter and energy interact.
