Elementary principles of physics, meteorology, chemistry, geology, and astronomy.
This course is an introduction to astronomy, which covers the operations and functions of a telescope, star charting, the solar system, planets, stars and the universe.
This is the first semester course in physics for students without a calculus background. The course will cover topics relative to Newton’s Laws of Motion. These will include describing motion, falling objects and projectile motion, explaining motion, circular motion, the planets and gravity, energy and oscillations, momentum and impulse, and the rotational motion of solid objects.
This is the second semester course in physics for students without a calculus background. The course will cover topics in fluids and heat, heat engines and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, wave motion and optics, radiation, atomic spectra, quantum mechanics, nuclear chemistry and relativity.
This course will cover the basic principles and concepts of Newtonian mechanics. Topics will include translational and rotational motion, work, energy, power, momentum, conservation of energy and momentum, periodic motion, waves, sound, heat, and thermodynamics.
This course will cover the basic principles and concepts of electricity, magnetism and modern physics. Topics will include electricity, circuits, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, optics, relativity, photons and matter, nuclear physics, quarks, leptons and the Big Bang.
