Course Description

We will be using the book Thinking Physics, and the book is available as a .pdf or ebook at Internet Archives: https://archive.org/details/ThinkingPhysicsPracticalLessonsInCriticalThinking_201808. This is an introduction to conceptual physics which does not require much math and absolutely does not require calculus. Because one of the main goals is to develop accurate physics intuition, our discussions of the problems will acknowledge and discuss common errors of thinking while we develop the conceptual tools necessary for later application of mathematical tools to solving physics problems. No homework!

SYLLABUS

Problem based discussion course, we will not discuss every problem in the book, but we will discuss a sampling from all topic areas.

Topics:
Kinematics
Newton's Laws of Motion
Momentum and Energy
Rotation
Gravity
Fluids
Heat
Vibrations
Light
Electricity & Magnetism
Relativity
Quanta



This course is $350. GHF, SENG, MAGE (Mass), and NHAGE Members pay $320!(But no double dipping, sorry!) Multiple children? Talk to us!
