A
calculus-based survey of Physics. This first semester covers topics in
mechanics, heat and thermodynamics, and wave motion. The course stresses ideas--the unifying
principles and characteristic models of physics. Labs develop the crucial ability to elicit
understanding of the physical world. Corequisite:
MATH 141. This course has four Lab
options, see below. Class size: 24

4 credits This course
presents mathematical methods that are useful in the physical sciences. While
some proofs and demonstrations are given, the emphasis is on the applications.
Topics include: complex functions, vector spaces, matrices, coordinate
transformations, power series, probability and statistics, and multi-variable
differentiation and integration. Prerequisites: Mathematics 141-142, or
equivalent, and strong preparation in physics comparable to Physics 141. Class

An extension of
introductory physics concentrating on developments in physics that stem from
the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and
statistical
mechanics. A major focus will be
understanding classical and quantum waves, but there will also be overviews of
particle physics,
nuclear
physics, optical and molecular physics, condensed matter physics, astronomy,
and cosmology. Prerequisites: Physics 141-142 and
Mathematics
141-142. Class size: 15

This course is an
introduction to modern astrophysics from the solar system to the basic ideas of
cosmology. Starting from methods of measuring astronomical distances and the
laws of planetary motion, we study the cosmos using classical mechanics, special relativity and
basic quantum mechanics. Topics may include: solar system, the interior of the
sun, star classification, the life cycle of stars, black holes, galaxies, dark
matter, search for alien life, and cosmology including the Big Bang theory and
dark energy. Prerequisites: Physics 241 Class size: 15
