 Become a 2D Kinematics Master
Course Introduction
This course is all about 2 dimensional kinematics.
2D kinematics is study of things moving in a plane. Which means stuff can curve now. This adds difficulty to the analysis of motion. However by learning a new tool of mathematics called Vectors, we can use our knowledge of 1D kinematics (motion in a straight line) and analyse 2D motion WITHOUT ANY EXTRA FORMULAE! This is amazing!. This is the beauty of mathematics.
You will see that the course is made
The course is Structured as follows
Concept videos, Practice problem videos, Extra information (Which is not mandatory but helps you get more insight and get more out of the course :))
For every concept, I have included trivial and challenging quizzes to make sure, you can check your understanding and review any material if needed.
There are assignment questions which test your application abilities and how you are able to connect various topics together.
At the end you have practice test, with timings and scores. This makes you self evaluate your learning and understand how much you have gained from the entire course.
So what are you waiting for, enrol and "let's get.. wait for it... moving"! (sorry for that, my jokes get better)

About the Instructor(s)
Mahesh Shenoy
Hello there, I am Mahesh Shenoy, but you can call me Mashy
I am basically an electronics engineer, but I shifted branches from applied electronics to pure science  namely physics about 4 years ago. My passion for physics grew watching the famous Walter Lewin lectures on youtube, and I always had a thing for teaching. As a student I know exactly what makes lectures boring, and uninteresting. I have dedicated past few years to master physics and teaching. I would say I am quite pleased with where I stand
Whether you will be able to master concepts of physics, is something that only you can decide. I can promise you, if you hear me out, I ll make you love physics. I ll make you see physics in your everyday world, and your life will never remain the same!
