PHYSICS

PHYSICS 101: Introductory Physics (PHYS 101, 4 Credits)
Introduces the principles of mechanics, waves, thermodynamics. Covers measurement, dynamics, impulse, momentum, work & energy, heat and temperature, oscillations, and fluids. Three hours of lecture and two hours of tutoring and field visits.

PHYSICS 121: Physical Principles I (PHYS 121, 4 Credits)
Covers basic topics of physics such as Newtonian mechanics, fluids, heat, vibration, electricity and magnetism, and light and sound. The lab work is designed to demonstrate each of these principles.

PHYSICS 122: Physical Principles II (PHYS 122, 4 Credits)
Covers motion, conservation principles, rotational motion, and oscillatory behavior through a calculus-based continuation of PHYS 121. 

PHYSICS 301: Biophysics (PHYS 301, 4 Credits)
Explores the biophysics of signaling and movement at the molecular level and introduces mathematical modeling. Covers diffusion, membrane potentials, ion channels, synapses, action potentials, and neural coding will all be discussed.
