Currently Teaching

PHYS-212
4 Credits
This course is a continuation of PHYS-211, University Physics I. Topics include electrostatics, Gauss' law, electric field and potential, capacitance, resistance, DC circuits, magnetic field, Ampere's law, inductance, and geometrical and physical optics. The course is taught in a lecture/workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses.
PHYS-217
4 Credits
This course is a continuation of PHYS-216, University Physics I: Physics Majors. Topics include fluids, thermodynamics, electrostatics, Gauss’ law, electric field and potential, capacitance, resistance, circuits, magnetic field, Ampere’s law, inductance, and geometrical and physical optics. Calculus and basic numerical techniques will be applied throughout the course to analyze non-idealized complex systems. The course is taught in a lecture/workshop format that integrates the material traditionally found in separate lecture and laboratory courses. The course will also include enrichment activities connecting current developments in the field of physics.
