Earth to Mars

Classical Mechanics I

Classical Mechanics is Physics I the way that Newton envisioned. It requires a solid understanding of the math courses up through Differential Equations and Linear Algebra. The most important topic in this course is the Lagrangian. 

The prerequisites for this course are:  Physics II, and Multivariable Calculus 

This course is a co- or prerequisite for: Differential Equations
