What we learn:
• Kinematics – the laws of motion, movement of bodies at constant velocity.
• Newton’s Laws, and force. Newton’s three laws and the mechanical forces which exist in nature.
• Circular motion – understanding the movement of bodies in circular motion.
• Harmonic motion – understanding objects which move in a harmonic way.
You are invited to a slightly different Physics Course that does not require prior knowledge, only curiosity and will-power. Using logic and everyday thinking, you will learn how to solve Newtonian Mechanics problems. Join Dr. Yossi Ben-Zion for an extraordinary experience, at the end of which you will find that you love Physics, and not just that, but you are good at Physics!
The Introduction to Physics - Mechanics course, also known as Physics 1, is a classical mechanics course that is suitable for students in introductory undergraduate courses, pre-university courses, physics matriculation and anyone who feels that Physics always interested them but they don’t know how to get started.
The course is presented by Dr. Yossi Ben-Zion from the department of Physics at Bar-Ilan University and is intuitively built with examples, demonstrations by the end of the course you will be able to solve advanced mechanics problems, but more importantly you will be able to look at the phenomena happening around you and understand why they happen, and predict events that have not yet happened.
During the course we will learn about the movements of bodies, different forces in nature, energy, momentum and more.
We invite you to join us for a different experience, and a totally different course from anything you have seen or heard so far. Let’s enjoy learning Physics!

Dr. Yossi Ben-Zion
Dr. Yossi Ben-Zion is a senior faculty member and is the Deputy Head of the Physics department at Bar-Ilan University. Dr. Ben-Zion has a BA in physics and computer science, a Master's degree in physics with honors and a PhD, all from Bar-Ilan University. During his PhD studies he was awarded the prestigious Wolf Prize for outstanding doctoral students and was elected several times as an Outstanding Departmental Lecturer. Dr. Ben-Zion was elected three times (!) by the University as an Outstanding University Lecturer and is considered a first-class lecturer with the ability to convey material in a clear and organized manner, creating interest among the students. He invests his time and effort above and beyond in his teaching, and the results are reflected in the students’ achievements. Recently Dr. Ben-Zion was ranked among the 57 most beloved lecturers in Israel by a comprehensive study conducted by the Student Union and the Mako site. Over the years, Dr. Ben-Zion has taught the course "Introduction to Physics-Mechanics" several times, in various frameworks, and has accumulated knowledge and experience that have improved the method of teaching so that the course's material will be clear, interesting and suitable for students on different levels. Dr. Ben-Zion built the digital course after much thought based on the conclusions he has drawn over the years in order to create a course with wide appeal to anyone who studies in this field
