PHYS 107 Elementary Physics – 4 hrs. –

This course surveys physics from mechanics to modern physics in one semester. It is designed for students in curricula requiring a one semester course at the level of general college physics. A student can not receive credit for both PHYS 107 and any of the following: PHYS 109, PHYS 113, or PHYS 205.

PHYS 108 Elementary Physics Laboratory – 1 hrs. –

This is a laboratory course which includes exercises related to topics covered in PHYS 107. Normally this course is taken concurrently with PHYS 107. A student may not receive credit for both PHYS 108 and any of the following: PHYS 109, PHYS 114, or PHYS 206. Prerequisite: PHYS 107 concurrently.

Course Goals:

TO BECOME KNOWLEDGEABLE and FUNCTIONAL in using physical science concepts and conceptual relationships to describe, predict and explain events in the everyday world. TO UNDERSTAND the basic nature of science, that it consists of two kinds of truths, some observationally true and other truths that are accepted because of supported theories. TO UNDERSTAND how scientists talk about the world and to understand how this differs from how non-scientists talk about the world. TO ACCEPT the importance of the knowledge of "how we know something is so" in science. TO UNDERSTAND the importance of prior conceptions about the physical world in learning (and teaching) physical science and how it interacts with Nature.

Significant Dates:
