Class Description

This is the first of a three semester introductory course in physics for students in sciences and engineering. 1301/02/03 is designed to prepare you for work in you field by: having a solid conceptual understanding of the way the real world works based on a few fundamental principles of physics; being able to solve realistic problems using logical reasoning and quantitative problem solving skills; applying those physics concepts and problem solving skills to new situations; and learning to effectively communicate technical information. To achieve these goals, this course requires you to understand the material in depth; we will go at a pace which should make that possible. The emphasis will always be on the application of physics principles to real-life situations, and a large fraction of the problems will be designed to simulate such situations. This course assumes a background equivalent to high school calculus. Both physics and calculus concepts in this course will be explained as they are introduced. A laboratory is included to allow you to apply both the concpts and problem solving skills taught in this course to the real world. A recitation section will give you the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and practice your problem solving skills.
