|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
This calculus-based subject is an introduction to special topics in Physics. The special
topics in any given year may include: thermodynamics, special relativity, and nuclear
and particle physics. There is also a laboratory component which introduces electric
circuits, physical optics, and laboratory projects.
- recognize information, concepts, and principles of fundamental electric circuits and
modern physics, including the correct use of terminology and definitions;
- select, identify, and use the appropriate data and physics principles to complete
a problem or task, including the manipulation of mathematical entities to solve problems
in modern physics and electric circuits;
- assess experimental data using specific standards and criteria, including identifying,
describing and justifying the best approach to solving an experimental problem;
- communicate experimental/observational data using a logbook, and compose a final report
under the direction of a style manual.
