Physics 100-04: Elements of Physical Science (Spring 2017)

Course Description

Physics 100: Elements of Physical Science is an introductory course in physical science intended for non-science majors. Our ultimate goal is to gain an understanding of the scientific process and how the physical sciences help us comprehend the world around us. This course introduces the mathematical description of motion (kinematics), the explanation of motion through forces (dynamics), and the concepts of energy and momentum. The final unit of the course explores an area of modern physics (e.g., special relativity, quantum mechanics, or particle physics). Throughout the course, we will develop analytical reasoning and problem solving skills which are widely applicable to modern life.
