Goals
Physics 201 is
the first semester of a 2semester introduction to physics for
students preparing for careers in engineering, science and medicine.
The main topics are mechanics, including kinematics, dynamics,
statics, fluids, and oscillations. There are two lectures, two
discussions and one threehour lab per week. Our goal is for you to
develop an understanding and intuition for physics so that you can
solve practical problems. We feel that the only way to accomplish
this goal is by thinking about and solving lots of problems and
experimenting in the lab. We hope that Physics 201 will develop the
critical thinking and collaborative skills you will need in your
future career.
