Topics in Physics

Physics seeks to discover and understand the how of nature. With its tools, we can reveal the order beneath apparent chaos and find beauty in the laws that determine the shape and motion of our world. In this course, we will survey foundational topics in physics, including the properties of mechanics, electromagnetism and relativity. We'll examine everyday phenomena through the light of our theoretical knowledge and experimental discoveries. This course's persistent emphasis on problem solving, laboratory investigation, and practical applications will ensure the broad theoretical knowledge students will acquire strengthens their physical intuition.
