Summer Courses

We offer both Physics 1011 and Physics 1012 during the summer. Course descriptions and prerequisites follow. Note that the laboratory is offered as a separate 1 credit course. The lab is designed to be taken alongside the main 3 credit lecture course, but can be taken separately.

Physics 1011 (Basic Physics I) PHYS 1011 SYLLABUS and PHYS 1011L (LAB) SYLLABUS
Prerequisite: Math 1030 (College Algebra) and Math 1035 (Trigonometry) .  Calculus (Math 1100 or 1800) strongly recommended. A course specifically designed for students in health and life sciences covering in topics as classical mechanics and heat. Will not fulfill the Physics 2111 requirement for physics, chemistry, and engineering majors. Two and a half hours of lecture and two hours of laboratory.

Physics 1012 (Basic Physics II) PHYS 1012 SYLLABUS and PHYS 1012L (LAB) SYLLABUS
Prerequisite: Physics 1011. Continuation of Physics 1011. A course specifically designed for students in health and life sciences covering the topics of electricity, magnetism, light and radiation. Will not fulfill the Physics 2112 requirement for physics, chemistry, and engineering majors. Two and a half hours of lecture and two hours of laboratory per week.

Students may also want to consult our Undergraduate Handbook for Physics Majors which describes our degree programs in detail.
