General Introductory Physics

Course Description

An elementary study of the basic physical laws describing the motion of bodies. Includes the study of oscillations, waves, and sound. Applications to everyday physical phenomena in problem solving using verbal logic, critical thinking, and mathematics. In the laboratory, explore experimental scientific procedures by comparing theoretical models to classic experiments using standard measurement techniques, basic uncertainty analysis, and graphical interpretations of data.
