PHYS& 116 - General Physics III with Lab

Credits: 5
Continues the goals of PHYS& 115 . Explores the concepts associated with wave phenomena and atomic physics. Uses sound, light (including lasers) and mechanical vibrations as examples of waves.

Enrollment Requirement: Eligible for ENGL& 101  and a grade of 2.0 or higher in PHYS& 115  and MATH 97 ,or 1-1/2 years of high school Algebra.

Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science
Course Fee: $20.00

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

  1. Use appropriate reasoning to evaluate problems, make decisions, and formulate solutions, using algebraic methods in the study of magnetism, waves, oscillations, and modern physics.
  2. Give reasons for conclusions, assumptions, beliefs, and hypotheses, using algebraic methods in the study of magnetism, waves, oscillations, and modern 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.
