Topics in Physics

Physics seeks to answer some of the most fundamental questions about reality: what is something? Why do things happen? And why do they happen the way that they do? This course is a guided tour of foundational topics in classical and modern physics, including mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, thermodynamics, relativity, and quantum mechanics; the last part of the course will survey the state of physics research today. Students in this course will participate in hands-on experiments and serious problem-solving assignments to see how experimental and theoretical physics motivate each other.
