Technical Physics I - LAB — 3390
PHY 1250 – 0 credits
Peter L. Williams

Students will use various laboratory experiments to learn the fundamental phenomena, principles, and laws of physics. They will study motion, Newton's Laws, torque, and the principles of work and energy using algebra and trigonometry. Students will also study applications of these concepts in various fields of manufacturing. Prerequisite/Corequisite: MAT 1220 or MAT 1590 (or higher). J fall. Master Course Syllabus

Understanding Physics — 3395
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 — 3398
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
