Understanding Physics — 3541
PHY 1510 – 3 credits
Sean R. Nowling

Students in this one-semester introductory course will learn how physics is the foundation for all other sciences. Students will look at physics from a conceptual viewpoint where verbal reasoning is emphasized and a minimum of algebra is used. Motion, heat, forces, light, energy, electricity, and magnetism are studied with the underlying theme being energy transfer. Each topic will emphasize hands-on investigations and lab experiences. Eligibility: MAT 1500 or higher; Prerequisite/Corequisite: ENG 1510. J spring. Master Course Syllabus

General Physics I — 3543
PHY 1610 – 4 credits
Sean R. Nowling

Students will use computer-based sensors and probes to learn the fundamental phenomena, principles, and laws of physics. They will investigate Newtonian mechanics, rotational motion, simple harmonic oscillators and wave motion. Students will become aware of physics in everything they do and see. A tutorial session is available and strongly recommended. Prerequisite: ENG 1510, MAT 1590 (or higher), high school physics or PHY 1510. J fall; C occasionally. Master Course Syllabus
