Need to refresh your physics memory? Or did your high school drop the ball on physics? Either way, it’s Physics 090 to the rescue! This highly flexible, online, 11-week summer course will allow you to work at your own pace as you stretch your stiff physics muscles and get you into tip-top shape before your freshman year!
The class is:
- Student focused! Like all courses at Rose-Hulman, your professor is there for you!
- Convenient and flexible! We think you’ll need between 10 and 15 hours per week.
- A great way to transition to college and get to know the same professor you’ll have for your first-year physics classes.
Class runs from May 30 - August 16 with a well-earned summer break July 4-12. Topics we’ll cover include units, significant figures, vectors, 1 and 2 dimensional motion, kinematic equations, objects in free fall, motion in a circle, Newton’s laws, torques, angular momentum and more. Physics 090 will sharpen your physics knowledge using algebra, not calculus, so you can focus on the fundamental concepts of physics. The course is designed as a college prep course for physics--it does not count toward your Rose-Hulman GPA or earn academic credits.
Cost is $408.50 per credit hour for a total of $1634--a 50% discount on regular summer tuition rates. (Early cancelation fee is $150.) If you’re ready to tone up your physics muscles this summer, register now!
Note: If you’re going to be overseas during the course, please check with Professor Kosta Popovic before registering so we’re sure you’ll have the internet access you’ll need.
