Courses: Modern Introductory Physics: Beyond Newton (PHYSH115A01)

Fall 2013

Three class hours and one laboratory period. This introductory course provides students who have an advanced background in mechanics with an alternative pathway into physics by exploring applications of introductory physics through a modern perspective. Examples will be drawn from topics such as quantum physics, materials and nanoscience, biophysics, chaos and fluid motion, and relativity. This course forms a year-long sequence with Physics 106: Fundamental Physics II (Electricity and Magnetism) in the spring semester.

Prerequisites: Calculus at the level of Mathematics 114 plus significant prior experience in calculus-based introductory physics (mechanics) at the level of Physics 105, such as the Advanced Placement Physics C course (or an International Bacccalaureate

Fulfills: NA QU II
