Welcome to Physics 123!

This course is designed for elementary education students who are interested in developing a conceptual understanding of the world around them and in inspiring their future students to do the same. With an inquiry-based, hands-on approach little to no physics or mathematics background is required. However, active participation in all components of this course is essential. We hope that it will be a fun introduction to physics which will spark your curiosity about the intriguing puzzles that surround us every day.
