|MARK DISTRIBUTION IN PERCENT:||
|LABORATORY OBJECTIVES:||The goals of the laboratory component are:|
|COURSE OUTLINE:||Physics 241 will serve as a general level entry to college physics.
Some calculus will be introduced as needed. The principal focus of the
course will be the application of Newton's laws to diverse situations.
Major topics considered will be:|
In addition to the topics discussed above, the historical and cultural dimension of the ideas of physics will, where appropriate, be explored. This will lead to discussions relating one's worldview to one's physics (i.e. relating the Newtonian world view to modern determinism).
Modular Approach to Physics (MAP)
Throughout Physics 241 you will make use of materials from the MAP project. These consist of applets, animations, videolabs, tutorials and worked problems. You can access these materialson-line from either S201 or home.
|LAB OUTLINE:||Physics 241 consists of both lecture and laboratory activities. Laboratories will be based upon|
context-rich, collaborative learning situations. Lab activities will consist of:
Required texts, assignments, and grade distributions may vary from one offering of this course to the next. Please consult the course instructor for up to date details.
