Physics is the study of fundamentals, elements and energy. Combinations of elements are relegated to less fundamental sciences like chemistry and biology. In these notes I focus on fostering intuitive understanding of basic concepts. You may not need Newton's law of cooling in daily life, but it can be powerful to have a little deeper understanding of heat beyond "It's too darn hot."

Photons - How we see
A photon is a little bundle of energy. Some of them tweak molecules in your eye.
An atom is electrons, protons, and neutrons. A molecule is a bunch of atoms.
Heat is most often vibrating molecules.
Einstein invented quantum theory by explaining that a bookkeeping method invented by Plank was actually a manifestation of something that might be sort of real.
Nature is fickle. How are we to cope?
The Standard Model
Everything is built from a few standard pieces.
