**Place:** Momentum Learning

**Objectives:** This algebra based Physics course is for middle/high school students who are new to physics with no prior physics course work necessary. Students should have completed algebra I and geometry. This summer course will also give students a head start if they would like to prepare for the F=ma contest.

**Homework:** Homework will be assigned every week and can be worked and discussed in Saturday practice class.
