 A. Text

Holt Physics, Jerry S. Faughn, and Raymond A. Serway, 1997, ISBN 0-03-050597-6

B. Course Description

Students will be introduced to the fundamental of physics – the study of the world around us, which describe them through simple rules and mathematics.  Since the day we are born we observe things around us so we can understand how they work and relate to each other.  Learning how to throw and catch a ball is a physical undertaking example.

C. Main Goals

In this course we will utilize the things you’ve already noticed in everyday life and look at them closely, to discover things you have overlooked, and try to express how we can communicate the problems/solutions we’re dealing with in the language of physics.

D. Materials

  • Notebooks (Lecture and Lab)
