The **[course_title]** will provide an introduction to classical dynamics and waves. It serves as a preparation for further study in Geophysics-based degree programmes. By getting this course you will be able to solve problems in classical optics and thermodynamics, which provide a basis for further study in physics or another science. You will be able to use the essential apparatus in a physics laboratory to take and analyze measurements and understand the vocabulary and concepts of classical optics and thermodynamics.

**Assessment**

This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.

**Certification**

Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:
