Courses

A calculus-based introduction to the concepts of electricity and magnetism, which covers the same topics as PHY 114. Topics include electric and magnetic fields, electric potential, capacitance and inductance, elementary circuits, and electromagnetic oscillations. Laboratory experiments provide students with an understanding of basic DC circuit concepts and an introduction to AC circuits. This course may be repeated as PHY 114.

A calculus-based introduction to the concepts of electricity and magnetism. Study of electric and magnetic fields, electric potential, capacitance and inductance, elementary circuits, and electromagnetic oscillations. Laboratory experiments provide students with a solid understanding of basic DC circuit concepts and an introduction to AC circuits.

This course treats topics in classical physics from the areas of waves, optics, and thermodynamics. Two oral presentations with technical write-ups are required.

Teaching

Online and Continuing Education Courses

Calculus-based introduction to classical mechanics, emphasizing problem solving. Topics include 1- and 2-dimensional kinematics and dynamics; Newton's Laws of Motion; work, energy and momentum; and rotational motion and angular momentum. Many of these topics are further explored in laboratory experiments.
