    recent courses

    Physics I (Physics 197)

    Calculus-based introduction to the central concepts, laws, and structure of physics, presented in an active learning environment. The course is structured around three themes that are treated in depth: conservation laws, Newtonian physics, and special relativity. A daily regimen of homework and reading, as well as weekly homework assignments, small group problem-solving exercises, and active class participation are integral parts of this course.

      Physics II (Physics 198)

      Continuation of Physics 197. An advanced, calculus-based introduction to central concepts in modern physics in an active learning environment for students who desire to major in physics or another physical science, or who have a special interest in physics. The course is structured around three themes that are treated in depth: electricity and magnetism, quantum physics, and statistical and thermal physics. A daily regimen of homework and reading as well as active class participation are integral parts of the course.
