PH 2300 - The Phascination of Physics

Fall semester of even-numbered calendar years

A one-semester conceptual physics course designed to cover major physics topics in waves and sound, light and color, and electricity/magnetism through inquiry-based hands-on activities, discussion, and demonstrations. Emphasis will be on conceptual understanding and the applicability of physics to the real everyday world. Students will be expected to demonstrate conceptual and applied understand ing of covered physics principles through class discourse, written assessment, and the design of a project utilizing physics principles to be included in a “Haunted Physics Laboratory.” Course projects will contribute to the development of a Halloween-related physics lab to be set up in October as an educational physics laboratory for all physics students-and potentially, the public.

Recommended: MT 0100  or equivalent.
