Juniors, Seniors (Elective) 1.0 Credit

This course is designed to provide students with a solid introduction to general physics. The course focuses on Newtonian Mechanics. The course is organized around six big ideas that bring together the fundamental science principles and theories of general physics. Emphasis is placed on concepts, while mathematical analysis is used to support the concepts. Mathematical problem solving skills are necessary and weekly problem sets are assigned. Laboratory experiments are conducted using an inquiry-based approach and computer-based labs are conducted when appropriate.

Prerequisites: Students must have successfully completed two required science courses prior to the Physics electives. A strong background in Algebra is highly recommended.
