|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.
