K. Selby.

PHYS 2207-PHYS 2208  is a two-semester introduction to physics, intended for students majoring in biological science, physical science, or mathematics. The course provides a rich exposure to the methods of physics and to the basic analytical and scientific communication skills required by all scientists. Lectures are illustrated with applications from the sciences, medicine, and everyday life. Labs highlight topics from the lectures and utilize computer-aided data acquisition and analysis. Recitation sections emphasize learning via cooperative problem-solving. The course covers mechanics, conservation laws, gravitation, fluids, oscillations and waves, acoustics and thermal physics. At the level of University Physics for the Physical and Life Sciences, Vol. I, by Kesten and Tauck.
