recent courses

Physics I (Physics 191)

Calculus-based introduction to the concepts, laws, and structure of physics. Topics include kinematics, Newton's laws, energy, linear momentum, angular momentum, the conservation laws, gravitational force, harmonic motion, wave motion and interference, sound, and special relativity.

    Physics II (Physics 192)

    Continuation of Physics 191. Calculus-based introduction to concepts, laws, and structure of physics. Topics include electromagnetic forces and fields, direct current circuits, capacitance and inductance, electromagnetic radiation, light, physical optics, interference and diffraction, early quantum theory, and nuclear physics.

      Honors Problem Solving I (Physics 201)

      This is a problem solving course for students considering a physics or mathematics heavy major. The problems we will focus on will be more difficult and sophisticated than those encountered in Physics 191.

        Honors Problem Solving II (Physics 204)

        This is the second semester of a problem solving course for students considering a physics or mathematics heavy major. The problems we will focus on will be more difficult and sophisticated than those encountered in Physics 192.
