PHYS 101 - PHYSICS FOR NON-SCIENTSTS
This course fulfills the General Education category Scientific Reasoning. Our contemporary culture faces increasing distrust in scientific principles. Only citizens with basic scientific sensibility can grapple with the complexity, diversity. and change they will face. This is a conceptual physics course and emphasizes comprehension rather than computation. The mathematical structure of physics will be seen in frequent equations, but the equations will be used as a guide to thinking rather than as a recipe for computation. Everyday phenomena and applications will be explored for each topic. Numerous demonstrations and participatory exercises will be used to enhance the student’s understanding.
