Spring 2016

ASTR 002 PO – Introduction to Galaxies and Cosmology

A non-calculus introduction to cosmology. Topics will include our Milky Way galaxy, galaxy classification and evolution, historical perspectives on cosmology, an examination of the large scale structure of the universe and the history of the universe from the big bang to the present. Modern results and problems in cosmology will be examined.

PHYS 041L PO – General Physics Laboratory

Calculus-based introductory physics for non-majors. PHYS 41 focuses on Newtonian mechanics and thermodynamics. The course highlight the physical principles behind modern instrumentation in geology, chemistry, biology and other scientific disciplines and biomedical applications are discussed.

 

Fall 2015

ASTR 001L PO – Introductory Astronomy with Lab

A non-calculus based survey course on modern astronomy with a focus on stellar, galactic and cosmic evolution. Particular emphasis will be placed on new and exciting observational results from space and ground-based observatories and how they shape our contemporary understanding of the formation and evolution of the universe and solar system. Includes a laboratory component with telescope.

PHYS 042L PO – General Physics Laboratory

Calculus-based introductory physics for non-majors. PHYS 042 PO focuses on electricity & magnetism and waves. The course highlight the physical principles behind modern instrumentation in geology, chemistry, biology and other scientific disciplines and biomedical applications are discussed.

Spring 2015

PHYS 071 PO – Introductory Classical Mechanics

An introduction to classical mechanics, emphasizing the centrality of the fundamental conservation laws of Newtonian mechanics and focusing on applying Newton’s Laws of Motion and their consequences to standard physical systems such as the simple harmonic oscillator and planetary motion.

PHYS 072 PO – Introductory Electricity and Magnetism

An introduction to electricity, magnetism and waves, as summarized in Maxwell’s equations of electricity and magnetism. Emphasizes the concepts of electric and magnetic fields and their interactions with charged particles, ultimately leading to the great synthesis of electricity, magnetism and light.
