PHY 100-110 - Physics for Life

1 course unit
Physics for Life is a collection of courses that introduce students to the concepts of physics and physical science.  Through in-depth study of simple physical systems, students gain direct experience with the process of science.  Each course in this collection concentrates on one or more topics, including but not limited to the following: properties of matter, heat and temperature, light and color, magnets, electric circuits, fluids, and motion.  These courses are designed for students who do not intend to pursue further study or a career in physics or physical sciences.
The courses are not open to students who have completed PHY 121: General Physics I or PHY 122: General Physics II without permission of the instructor.
Prerequisite(s): No mathematical preparation beyond secondary school algebra and geometry is required.
