This Physics 248B course uses everyday, or, at least, familiar objects to introduce basic physics concepts. For example, discussions of skating, falling balls, and bumper cars are used to explain the Newton's Laws of Motion. Air conditioners and automobiles are used to explore concepts of thermodynamics. Engineers, architects, and professionals in other fields will benefit from the material that connects science to our everyday world. The website for the course is: https://canvas.uw.edu/courses/870917
