    PHYS& 110 - Physics Non-Science Majors with Lab

    Credits: 5
    For the student with no previous experience in physics or other physical science courses and even an apprehension toward science and math. Topics such as light, sound, electricity, and motion, are used to develop underlying principles which describe some of our physical universe. Stresses conceptual reasoning while mathematics is limited to arithmetic reasoning. Uses a hands-on approach to more easily gain insight to the concepts being studied.
