Phys 1202W.100

Introductory Physics for Biology and Pre-medicine II

Session: Summer 2014 (5/27-7/25)
Instructor: James Eckert (e-mail: eckert @ physics.umn.edu)
Time: 1115 MTWF
Location: Phys 131

This is the second semester of a two-semester course in introductory physics designed primarily for premed and biological science students. This is not a survey course of all physics but requires an in-depth understanding of fundamental principles and their application. Students should have a working knowledge of the mathematics skills used in Phys1201W. This semester will cover electricity and magnetism, light and optics, quantum description of atoms and nuclei, and relativity. A required laboratory illustrates the application of the concepts and problem solving skills taught in this course to the real world. It will also emphasize technical communications skills. A discussion section gives
the opportunity to discuss your conceptual understanding and your problem solving skills by practicing working problems with other students. The laboratory and discussions sections will emphasize collaborative problem solving as a powerful learning tool and as a preparation for work in your profession.
