Principles of Physics I

Principles of Physics I

Course Syllabus

In this course, you will learn about motion, mechanics, energy, and waves, as well as how you can apply these concepts to the real world. Additionally, you’ll learn skills to help you think and communicate like a scientist.

Watch this video to get an introduction to PHYS 2211 and the learning goals for the course:

In a blog written by Mónica I. Feliú-Mójer on February 24, 2015, she begins,

Science communication is part of a scientist’s everyday life. Scientists must give talks, write papers and proposals, communicate with a variety of audiences, and educate others. Thus to be successful, regardless of field or career path, scientists must learn how to communicate. Moreover, scientists must learn how to communicate effectively. In other words, to be a successful scientist, you must be an effective communicator.

The rest of her article can be read here: Effective Communication, Better Science and I highly recommend you read through it. It’s short, but extremely useful to better understand why we scientists must be excellent communicators.

This semester we will discuss concepts in what we call Classical Mechanics. This video provides a nice explanation of the fields of physics and some specifics about the physics you will study this semester.
