Introductory PhysicsPhysics is the study of matter, energy, and the interaction between them. Fundamental principles of physics provide the basis upon which much of modern technology operates. In this course students will investigate the fundamental principles of physics with an emphasis on conceptual understanding. Students will gain knowledge of natural processes and their applications. Topics include the structure of matter, mechanics, heat, light, electricity, and magnetism.3Qualifying score on reading assessment test OR ENGL0901PHYS2001View
College Physics ICollege Physics I is the first semester course in which the applications, problems, and experiments are selected to illustrate fundamental principles of physics, and demonstrate the relevance of physics to other areas of interest, such as the health science, and engineering technology professions. This first semester of the two-semester sequence is organized around the fundamental principles of forces and interactions, conservation of momentum and conservation of energy. Topics covered include force and motion with applications of Newton's Laws of Motion, gravitational force, angular momentum, torque and equilibrium, work, energy, static and dynamic fluids, and thermal physics. To facilitate learning how to solve problems, cooperative learning methods will be used in this section.4Qualifying score on math assessment test OR MATH1500 with a grade of C or betterPHYS2005View
