PHYS& 114 - General Physics I with Lab

5.0 Credits
Topics covered will include basic concepts in mechanics, such as dynamics, kinematics, energy, and momentum.
Prerequisite MATH& 141 with a minimum grade of 2.0 and placement in ENGL& 101.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a thorough understanding, at the nonmajors’ level, of the basic principles of Newtonian dynamics, kinematics, energy, and momentum.
  2. Develop a clear understanding of the scientific method and its application to these principles.
  3. Apply quantitative measures to situations involving these principles and develop a strong facility for working problems based on these principles.
  4. Analyze physical systems to decide what information and principles are relevant to understanding the behavior of the systems.
  5. Clearly communicate fundamental knowledge particular to physics with their peers using appropriate vocabulary.
