General Education - Physics

PHYS& 114 – General Physics I (5 credits)
This course is the first in a three quarter sequence of algebra-based physics. The course provides an introduction to mechanics, kinematics, energy, and conservation principles. Laboratory investigations, technical writing, problem solving using both physical and mathematical reasoning strategies and the scientific method of inquiry skills will be emphasized. Laboratory included. Prerequisite: MATH& 141.

PHYS& 115 – General Physics II (5 credits)
This course is the second in a three quarter sequence of algebra-based physics. The course provides an introduction to mechanical properties of matter, fluid mechanics, wave phenomena, and thermodynamics. Laboratory investigations, technical writing, problem solving using both physical and mathematical reasoning strategies and the scientific method of inquiry skills will be emphasized. Laboratory included. Prerequisite: PHYS& 114.

PHYS& 116 - General Physics III (5 credits)
This course is the third in a three quarter sequence of algebra-based physics. The course provides an introduction to electricity, magnetism, optics and modern physics. Laboratory investigations, technical writing, problem solving using both physical and mathematical reasoning strategies and the scientific method of inquiry skills will be emphasized. Laboratory included. Prerequisite: PHYS& 115.
