Foundational Physics — 3753
PHY 1500 – 4 credits
Sean R. Nowling

Students will use various experiments to learn the fundamental phenomena, principles, and laws of physics. Topics will include: motion, Newton's laws, torque, and the principles of work and energy. Students will look at physics both conceptually, where verbal reasoning will be emphasized, as well as quantitatively, where students will utilize algebra to model the physical world. No previous knowledge of physics is assumed. Prerequisite (or corequisite) ENG 1510, Eligibility: MAT 1590 or higher or Prerequisite: MAT 1500. J fall. Master Course Syllabus

General Physics I — 3318
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
