This is the first part of a course sequence designed to prepare you for work in your field by: having 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 an in depth understanding of the material. Phys 1101W will emphasize the dynamics approach to physics emphasizing the description of motion of interacting objects and the forces that they exert on each other. No previous physics knowledge is assumed, but it is assumed that you are able to do algebra, including solving quadratic and simultaneous equations, interpret simple graphs, basic geometry, especially the geometry of triangles; the use of sine, cosine, and tangent; and the Pythagorean Theorem. A laboratory requires you to apply both the concepts and problem solving skills taught in this course to the real world. It also emphasizes technical communications skills. A discussion section gives you the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and problem solving skills while you practice solving problems with other students. The laboratory and discussions sections emphasize collaborative problem solving as a powerful learning tool and as a preparation for work in your profession.
