This is the first course of a two-term survey of basic physics. It emphasizes the practical applications of classical mechanics, including motion, forces, energy, momentum, vibrations and waves, and of heat. The course is intended for students in such majors as architecture, agricultural sciences, building construction, and forest resources. Students in programs leading to the AS degree, such as Electronics Engineering Technology or Computer Engineering Technology, may also take this course. The course earns General Education credit under the Physical Sciences category for which successful students will demonstrate the skills necessary to understand and apply scientific concepts and reasoning, including the analysis and interpretation of various types of data. The laboratory experience is an integral and major part of the course and consists of experiments that develop the physics discussed in the lectures. The course earns General Education credit under the Physical Sciences category for which successful students will demonstrate the skills necessary to understand and apply scientific concepts and reasoning, including analysis and interpretation of various types of data.
