PHYS& 110 - Physics for Non-Science Majors with Lab

5.0 Credits
One quarter course in physics designed for nonscience majors. Students learn how physics explains their world. Class activities include learning about experimentation, measurement, and simple mathematical modeling. 
Prerequisite ENGL& 101 and MATH 087.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a critical understanding of general scientific principles, with an emphasis on the fundamental principles that govern the physical universe, including the principles underlying physical theories and processes of scientific discovery, and the nature of scientific evidence upon which contemporary physics theories are based.
  2. Apply physical principles and concepts in physics to problems that affect their lives, in particular, and our society, in general.
  3. Analyze physical systems, solve problems, and answer questions using mathematics appropriate to physics and performing calculations appropriate to the task.
  4. Clearly communicate fundamental knowledge particular to physics with their peers using appropriate vocabulary.
