## Description

College Physics is typically a two-semester Introductory Physics course designed for students planning to go into the Health Professions. It is sometimes called Introductory Physics for the Health Professions.

## Mathematics Level

The required math prerequisites are either College Algebra (Precalculus) or Calculus I depending on the institution.

Trigonometry Review is highly recommended as the course begins quickly with trigonometric functions that are used in a physics context.
