Calculus-based introduction to the concepts of classical mechanics, emphasizing problem solving and covering the same topics as PHY 113. 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. This course may be repeated as PHY 113.

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.
