PH 101 - Fundamentals of Physics
Some or all of the PH 101,2,3 sequence can be taken in any order. The 'Fundamentals of Physics' courses provide an introduction to a broad range of fundamental physics concepts. PH 101,2,3 are recommended for anyone seeking a good basic level of physics literacy. The sequence is designed for non-science majors, but also serves prospective science majors who want to gain a better conceptual grounding before taking General Physics. The sequence also meets physics elective requirements for career-technical students, and provides physics transfer credit if needed. Emphasis is on everyday phenomena and conceptual understanding more than calculations. PH 101 focuses on the nature of science, data analysis, Newton's explanation of motion, momentum, energy, gravity, the atomic nature of matter, and properties of solids, liquids, gases, and plasmas. The class environment includes labs, demonstrations, discussion, and individual and group activities. Lab included.
