PHYS111 is the first of two non-calculus courses covering fundamental principles of physics and targeted specifically toward non-science majors. It is followed by PHYS 112 offered in the spring semester. This fall course will concentrate on matter, mechanics, heat, and waves. Theory building and theory testing will be studied through examples, demonstrations, and problem solving. Problem-solving help sessions are run by TAs.

The associated laboratory course PHYS121 is optional. Students planning to enter the health professions should be aware that a year of physics with laboratory is usually required for admission. Consult your major adviser if you are in doubt about similar requirements in your field. While a background in calculus is not required, each student who enrolls in the course is assumed to be familiar with exponents and powers-of-10 ("scientific") notation, geometry, simple trigonometry, logarithms and proportions.
