SCI 110 Introduction to Physics
Varies (self-study, self-paced).
April 2022 - Present.
Upon successful completion of the learning experience, students will be able to: define the fundamental principles and key concepts of physics; apply scientific processes and knowledge of the natural world to make evidence-based decisions; draw accurate inferences from numeric and graphic representations of quantitative information to inform problem-solving; use appropriate terminology, deﬁne concepts, and apply skills across a range of contexts and areas of knowledge to identify and solve problems; interpret various types of written, visual and/or oral information; convert between metric and British systems of units; calculate solutions to problems involving velocity and acceleration; apply Newton's three Laws of Motion; solve problems of kinetic energy and potential energy; and outline the relationship between frequency and wavelength.
Major topics include Forces and Motion, Conservation Laws, Properties of Matter, Oscillations and Waves, Optics, and Electricity and Magnetism to develop a strong foundation in physics. This course is an introduction to the study of Physics and provides a broad overview of many fundamental physics topics. The material is designed in a way that is suitable even for students with a non-science-based major.
In the associate/certificate degree category OR in the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Introduction to Physics (1/23).
