To support you and your education, BCIT is adapting applied learning in formats appropriate to the unfolding global situation. All PTS classes are being delivered in an online format unless you are notified otherwise.
Provides a review of the basic Physics 11 concepts which are important for success in most first-year physics courses required in BCIT technology programs. This course is NOT a substitute for PHYS 0309. Topics covered include vectors, kinematics, dynamics, equilibrium, circular motion, mechanical energy and power. There will be some lab exercises, and problem-solving skills will be emphasized. This course is recommended for students who took Physics 11 more than one year ago, who have not applied the concepts and need to review. IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ PRIOR TO REGISTERING: This course serves as a short two-week review of some grade 11 physics and is not recognized as a Grade 11 or 12 equivalent by any institution. This course in only offered in the summer term.
