Physics 195

An exploration of the science of mechanics, concerning the set of physical laws governing and mathematically describing the motions of single objects and groups. The methods developed will be used in both 196 and 197.
Physics 196

An introduction to the physics of the electromagnetic field: A field encompassing all of space, which exerts a force on electric charges, and is in turn affected by the presence and motion of such particles.
Physics 197

This overview of modern physics explores propagation, energy transport, interference and diffraction effects of waves. Various systems are explored, including the electromagnetic and nuclear properties of the atom.

How to do well in a physics course:
1) Check schedule and announcements often.
2) Skim the text before class. Develop questions. (Try for higher order questions.)
3) Ask your questions and listen for the answer. (Keep asking until you understand)
4) Take a complete set of class notes.
5) Read with purpose. Reinforce with examples. (Work additional problems )
