College Physics I – OLI

The College Physics 1 course is an algebra-based Physics course covering classical mechanics, work, energy, sound, fluid Statics and dynamics, and thermodynamics. It covers all the topics included in the first semester of College Physics and includes formative assessments with scaffolding, and summative assessments at the end of each module.

The course is grounded in real-world examples, interactives, lecture videos, simulations, and scaffolded practice problems all designed in a logical flow. It also has an introductory module in Mathematics containing essential Trigonometry and Algebra review needed for problem solving in the course.

These materials are available as an OLI course.

  • Open Learning Initiative (OLI) courses are designed by learning scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. They use data and research insights to develop, test, and improve OER course materials that effectively support learning.
