Striving to eliminate ignorance, one student at a time.
P hysics is the most fundamental of all the sciences. At the essence of any other science is the physics behind the problem. Physics deals with the interaction of energy and matter. This rather broad statement is typically broken down into the subjects of mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics, relativity, and quantum mechanics. Each of these disciplines shows a relationship between energy and matter. Physics provides an understanding of our universe by developing theories based on observation. These theories are typically expressed in the form of mathematical equations, but this is only a shorthand for the concepts gleaned from experimentation.
It is this relationship between experimentation and explanation that differentiates a scientist from a casual observer. We are inquisitive people, who want to know why the world behaves the way it does. We look at our surroundings a little differently than others, forming questions and seeking answers. As with any science the theories we form must explain what is observed or be revised to accommodate the new data. This is the basis of the scientific process.
I t is my goal, through teaching physics, to make students a little more inquisitive and to look at their world in a new light.
