An introduction to light, optical phenomena, and
related devices, including some historical perspective; classical and modern
models of light; light and color in nature, and vision; the geometrical optics
of lenses, mirrors, and related devices; the physical optics of interference
and diffraction; spectroscopy and polarization; lasers, and holography. Without
assuming either prior knowledge of physics or heavier mathematics, we will
develop models and explore them in intermixed lecture/discussion and
experiment/demonstration modes.

A calculusbased survey of Physics. This first semester covers topics in
mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, and wave motion. The course stresses ideasthe unifying principles and
characteristic models of physics. Labs
develop the crucial ability to elicit understanding of the physical world.

This course is a survey of analog electronics
ending with a brief
introduction to digital electronics. Beginning with Kirchhoff's Laws, voltage
dividers and filters, we will proceed to power supplies, amplifiers,
oscillators, operational amplifiers, timers, and IC's. We will employ
semiconductor diodes, bipolar and fieldeffect transistors, and IC's. We
will leave time at the end to explore Boolean algebra and some basic digital
electronic functions, ending with construction of a pared down busarchitecture
prototype. The course consists of equal
parts lecture and lab. Corequisites: at least one physics course and one
math course numbered above 140.
