Introductory Physics I

PHYS 111
Fall 2019
Section: 01   02  
Course Cluster: Health Studies

This course, along with PHYS 112 in the spring semester, is an introduction to the fundamental principles of physics. Employing trigonometry, algebra, and basic calculus, the goal is to provide tools for the quantitative understanding of a wide variety of phenomena, with many examples taken from the life sciences. The lab PHYS 121 is recommended. Since algebra is an important prerequisite for PHYS 111, we strongly recommend that all students take a diagnostic test prior to the start of the course. It can be found at https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/test/subject-challenge?modal=1

Taking this "Course Challenge" will take 30-45 minutes and leave you with a good idea of where your algebra skills might need review. Follow-up guided lessons can be chosen at this website.
