2020 Courses

  • Summer Session 2020 courses will be added throughout the winter.

Course description

First course in a three-semester introductory physics sequence. This course is taught in a largely “flipped’, highly interactive manner, with reading preparation required for class. Covers the mechanics of particles with focus on kinematics, dynamics, conservation laws, central force fields, periodic motion. Mechanics of many-particle systems: center of mass, rotational mechanics of a rigid body, rotational equilibrium, and fluid mechanics. Temperature, heat, the laws of thermodynamics. At the level of University Physics, Vol. 1, by Young and Freedman.

Students interested in majoring in Engineering Physics or Physics, and who have a strong physics and mathematics background are encouraged to consider PHYS 1116.


MATH 1910, MATH 1120 or MATH 1220.


Recommended coreg in MATH 1920 in order to continue with PHYS 2213 the following semester. Coreg with MATH 1910 may be allowed by instructor in exceptional cases, but continuation in PHYS 2213 may then have to be deferred until MATH 1920 is completed
