Reading the questions asked here will surely hone a person's skills at reading minds but I doubt any of us can guess what YOU expect from the course.

Maybe you should spend a little time thinking about it. Before getting to that question, ask yourself how you plan to support yourself all of your life? If you think it's possible you might need a job then, what will the organization writing your checks be paying you for? Do you think they might expect you to know something?

Bottom line, anything you get paid above the minimum wage will be for what you know and the more you know, the more you'll be paid. Physics explains part of how the world works at the most basic level. An excellent place for you to start building a skill set that will get you where you want to go.

Physics is the study of matter and energy, how our universe works. To be good at physics, you must be good at math.
