  • Orientation (required for students who did not take Phys 1101) on Thursday, January 25 at 7:30 pm in RCK Schwartz Auditorium. PHYS 1102 allows considerable flexibility, but students must plan to come to the Learning and Testing Centers (RCK 280 and 250) regularly. The Centers are open most afternoons and evenings, beginning at 11:15 am on the first day of class. Time-management skills and self-motivation are crucial to success. Freshmen are not allowed to enroll due to difficulty level and enrollment capacity.

PHYS 1112

First course in a three-semester introductory physic sequence. This course is taught in a largely "flipped', highly interactive manner, with reading preparation required for class. Covers the mechanics ... view course details
