COURSE DESCRIPTIONS PHYS 101: Concepts in Physics This one-semester course provides an introduction to fundamental concepts in physics sufficient to provide a foundation for other courses in the physical and medical sciences. The course is appropriate for all students, particularly those in allied-health majors. Topics will include motion, center of mass, levers, force, energy, momentum, pressure, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, and sound waves. While emphasis is placed on mastery of basic concepts, computations requiring high-school level math are an integral part of the course. Prerequisite: None; however, high school trigonometry, MATH 111, 112, or 114 are strongly recommended. 3 credits PHYS 105: College Physics 1 This course provides an algebra and trigonometry-based introduction to mechanics, fluids, and waves, and emphasizes quantitative and conceptual understanding of the material. Topics covered include kinematics in one and two dimensions, Newton’s laws of motion, rotational motion, gravitation, conservation of energy and momentum, fluids, oscillations, and sound. Pre-requisites: MATH 112 or MATH 135 or MATH 140 3 credits
