Course Descriptions: phys

Phys203 College Physics I 4 hours

Includes the areas of mechanics, waves, sound and heat and thermodynamics. This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence in algebra-based physics. The course is designed to meet the requirements for environmental science, biology and pre-professional students. Prerequisite: trigonometry. A Knowledge Source Course.

Phys204 College Physics II 4 hours

Continues College Physics I, including the areas of electricity and magnetism, light, optics and modern physics. This algebra-based course is designed to meet the requirements for environmental science, biology, pre-professional students and those not requiring calculus-based physics. Prerequisite: Phys 203 and math through pre-calculus.

Phys213 Physics for Scientists and Engineers I 5 hours

Includes the areas of mechanics, waves, sound and heat and thermodynamics. This course is the first semester of a two-semester sequence in Physics for Scientists and Engineers. This calculus-based course is designed to meet the requirements for science and engineering majors. Prerequisites: calculus or concurrent enrollment in MaSc 141. A Knowledge Source Course.

Phys214 Physics for Scientists and Engineers II 5 hours

Continues Physics for Scientists and Engineers I, including the areas of electricity and magnetism, light, optics and modern physics. This calculus-based course is designed to meet the requirements for science and engineering majors. Prerequisites: Phys 213, MaSc 141 and MaSc 142.
