Physics as a Foundation for Science and Engineering I
This is the first half of a one-year, team-based and project-based introduction to physics. The course teaches students to develop scientific reasoning and problem-solving skills. Topics include: kinematics; linear and rotational motion; conservation of momentum and energy; forces; gravity; oscillations and waves. Multivariable and vector calculus is introduced and used extensively in the course. Students work in teams on three, month-long projects, each culminating in a project fair.
