MOOC: Mechanics: Motion, Forces, Energy and Gravity, from Particles to Planets

This on-demand course is recommended for senior high school and university students, science teachers and anyone with a curiosity about basic physics. The course uses rich multimedia tutorials to present the material: film clips of key experiments, animations and worked example problems, all with a friendly narrator. You will complete a range of interesting practice problems, and in an optional component, you will use your ingenuity to complete at-home experiments using simple, everyday materials.


You will be required to submit evidence of successfully completing each course to Student Life and Learning.
