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.

Enrollment Requirement: Eligible for ENGL& 101 .

Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science

Course Outcomes:
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:

  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions, with respect to experimental design and inference in physics.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses, with respect to experimental design and inference in physics.

Program Outcomes
  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses.


College-wide Outcomes
  • Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
