recent courses

Physics I (Physics 197)

Calculus-based introduction to the central concepts, laws, and structure of physics, presented in an active learning environment. A daily regimen of homework and reading, as well as weekly homework assignments, small group problem-solving exercises, and active class participation are integral parts of this course. 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.

    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 197.

      Physics II (Physics 198)

      Continuation of Physics 197. Calculus-based introduction to the central concepts, laws, and structure of physics, presented in an active learning environment. A daily regimen of homework and reading, as well as weekly homework assignments, small group problem-solving exercises, and active class participation are integral parts of this course. Topics include electricity and magnetism, waves, quantum mechanics, and nuclear physics.

        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 198.
