PHYS 1200 - Physical Science II


3 cr. 4 hr. This course may be offered less than once every two years. Also offered evenings.

This course is designed to help non-science students in developing a meaningful and functional understanding of key physical science concepts and methodology. Topics include motion, force, heat, energy and nature of matter. The course is taught with a combination of lectures, group discussions and learning-by-doing activities. The emphasis is to provide students with open-ended problem solving environments that facilitate insight into the nature of science as an intellectual activity, and to encourage students to explore alternate conceptions of physical phenomena.
