Problem sets (consisting mostly of computer numeric simulations), Final Essay, and Final Exam. No previous programming experience is required, but a willingness to learn simple numerical programming through classroom examples and programming workshops is essential. We will use mathematica in class, but students may use another language for their problem sets if they prefer.
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
PHYS217 is a second-quarter course. You must have had physics with calculus. This course, along with PHYS215, can provide an entry point into the Physics major for exceptionally well prepared students.
